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)

Turmeric powder- 1 tsp
Asafoetida- a pinch
Coriander powder 1 tsp
