SOYA CHUNKS BIRYANI | SOYA CHUNKS RECIPES

   soya-chunks-biryani
Biryani is a very popular and rich one pot meal. I am posting the recipe of soya chunks biryani  made in pressure cooker, though it is not the authentic way of making biryani, but i am sure it will taste awesome and  easy one to make even on a busy weekday mornings too.
Before going into the post i wanted to mention to all my readers that i have a Facebook Fanpage for Jeyashri’s Kitchen and you can get all the updates by clicking the Like button over there. And for I am clarifying the doubt that i am not writing recipes in Facebook  i have a website  and i have a collection of 600+ recipes , i have linked my posts to get published in Facebook. For those who are not aware of it, just click HERE.
Over to the recipe of Protein Rich Soya Chunks Biryani:


Preparation time: 15 minutes . Cooking time: 15 minutes. Serves: 1-2

INGREDIENTS:
BASMATHI RICE 1/2 CUP
SOYA CHUNKS 1/4 CUP
WATER 1/2 CUP
COCONUT MILK 1/4 CUP
GARLIC 4-5 PODS
GINGER 1 SMALL PIECE
FENNEL SEEDS 1/4 TSP
ONION 2
MINT LEAVES 2 TBSLP
RED CHILLI POWDER 1/4 TSP
TURMERIC POWDER A PINCH

OIL 1-2 TBLSP
SOYA CHUNKS BIRYANI
METHOD:
  • In a saucepan add 1-2 cups water and when it comes to a nice boil add 1 tblsp of milk and the soya chunks to it. Let it boil for 2 minutes. when it is done, drain the water and squeeze the soya chunks to take out the extra water. Do it when the chunks are warm and the heat is easy to handle.

  • Wash and soak the rice for 10 minutes in half cup of water.
  • After 10 minutes take out the rice only (keep the water aside) and roast it in a pan adding a tsp of oil for a minute. Be careful not to burn it.

  • Just soak it again the same water. Add the coconut milk to this. I grind 2-3 tblsp of scrapped coconut by adding 1/4 of water to it and extracted the coconut milk at home.

  • Roughly chop 1 onion and in a pan add few drops of oil and saute the garlic,onion and mint leaves till the onions turns golden brown.

Note:
  • We don’t like the addition of whole garam masala , but if you like just temper with cloves and bay leaf .
  • The same procedure can be followed for Vegetable biryani too. Just replace soya chunks with Mixed vegetables .
  • Addition of coconut milk is highly recommended.
  • While grinding the masala you can add 1/4 tsp of garam masala  too.
  • My ratio for rice and water is 1: 1.5 cup.
