how to make Soya Chunk Paratha | Soya Granules Paratha

Soya Keema Parantha, I am not sure from where the dish originated. But, let me tell you how I discovered it. Soya is something which we rarely use it, though I want to. I was searching for a recipe, which won't show its existance. And thus, I came across Nisha Madhulika's Soya Granules Paratha. I loved the combination of soya and capsicum and thought of trying it out in a different way, as Nishaji's recipe is a no onion- no garlic recipe.  And I have no problem at all adding these two into mine. Now, there are times, when I avoid using these two for a quick cooking.


Instead of granules, which I never came across, I had these Soya Chunks, also called as meal maker. I cooked the soya chunks as usual. And to get the granules consistency, I just blended it in food processor, it's that simple and some variations in masala. If you are using soya granules, please avoid this step.

 Soya is something which doesn't have it's own taste, rather it absorbs the surrounding flavor, in which it is combined. So, you can add it to as many dishes as you want. And why not, it is highly packed with protein, making these parathas a healthy start for a day. Instead of stuffing, you can have the soya keema masala as a side dish for chapati or make a wrap and even can turn it to a cutlet, choice is endless. I loved having this with slightly sweet curd.

 We are making this stuffed paratha in two parts. First part includes preparing for stuffing and dough making and second part is for making parathas.



PART I : Soya keema Stuffing

1. Boil about 3-4 cups of water. Soak the soya chunks in the hot water. Cover it. Make sure the flame is off. Let is sit for about 10-15 minutes.

2. Meanwhile knead for dough by adding all the ingredients mentioned under 'For making dough'. Take water little by little, or else you might end up adding more flour. Keep it aside.

3. By this time, soya must be ready, you will see soya chunks has absorbed water. Drain the water from soya by transfering it to a colander. Pour fresh water over the chunks. Extract all the water from soya chunks by pressing it hard between your palms. Keep it aside.


4. For grinding, take ginger, garlic and chilly in a mixie. Grind to a coarse paste without adding any water. Alternatively, you can add 2 tbsp of ginger-garlic-chilly paste.

5.  Heat oil in a shallow pan. Splutter cumin seeds. Saute chopped onions and ground ginger-garlic-chilly paste till the raw smell disappears or onion is golden brown. Meanwhile grind the soya into kheema. Just 1-2 pulse is enough.



6. Add hing and remaining masala powders to the sautéing onion. Mix well till its all well sautéed.

7. Add soya keema and chopped capsicum. Mix well and cover and cook for 2-3 minute. Keep mixing often as it might stick to the bottom. Uncover and add coriander leaves. switch off the flame. Let it cool down.




PART II :  Soya keema paratha

Now, lets start making parathas.



1. Heat griddle while you start making paratha. Divide the dough into 10 equal balls. Alternatively, you can take out a small portion of dough, approximately a size of a medium guava.

2. Roll it out into a 5-6 inches of disc. Put the stuffing in the middle about 2-3 tbsp.

3. Hold together all the sides and seal well.

4. Dust it with some flour and roll again slowly to form a paratha.

5. Roast it on griddle and smear some ghee on top. Flip over and cook both the side till you see golden spots. Transfer to a hot box. Repeat above steps till you are done making.
