Soya Masala Rice: A Perfect Lunch


Soybeans are a complete protein food rich. A 3.5-ounce serving of soya chunks contains over 54 grams of protein. This is more than the same serving size of meat and eggs.


I keep trying some interesting recipes to ensure a healthy diet for the complete family!


Here’s the recipe of Soya Masala Rice which is loved by my family a lot:




Soya chunks - 1 cup (soaked)

Basmati Rice – 2 cups

Oil – 1 tbsp

Ghee – 2 tbsp

Bay Leaves / Ramba Ilai / Biryani leaf – 3 pieces

Onions – 1 large sliced thinly

Green Chillies – 2 slit

Tomatoes – 1 large chopped finely

Potatoes diced - 1 large

Green peas a fistful

Chilli powder- 1 tsp

Turmeric powder- 1 tsp

Asafoetida- a pinch

Coriander powder 1 tsp

Salt to taste


To Grind:

Ginger – 3 cm piece

Garlic –  4 cloves peeled


Method :


1) Wash and soak rice in lots of water for 30 mins. Take the grinding ingredients in a blender and make it into a smooth paste.


2) Heat oil and 1 tbsp of ghee in a pressure cooker. Add in bay leaves and fry for 30 sec.


3) Add in the sliced onions and saute till it is brown.


4) Add in green chilies and ground masala and saute for 2 mins till the raw smell leaves from it.


5) Add in tomatoes and cook for 2 mins or so. Add Turmeric powder,red chilli powder, asafoetida, salt and coriander powder.


6) Add in chopped potatoes, peas, soya chunks, and toss well in the masala. Add in soaked, drained rice and mix well.


7) Bring this to boil, simmer the stove and pressure cook for 15 mins. Switch off the heat and let the steam go all by itself.


8) Carefully open the cooker. Now heat 1 tbsp of ghee and fry cashews till it golden, pour this ghee and cashews over the rice and mix well.


Ready to serve!
