I have discussed in my previous post of SOYA CHUNKS MATAR CURRY, benefits of SOYA as a protein substitute. So just lets begin with another recipe made from SOYA CHUNKS. You can also use soya granules for this.



  • 200 grams Soya chunks/granules
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 4 cups(1 litre) of water for boiling soya chunks
  • 1/4 th cup  besan(chickpea flour) ,
  • 1 medium potato boiled and mashed
  • 1 bunch of spring onions
  • 1 teaspoon garlic paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala powder
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder(dhaniya powder)
  • 1 teaspoon fennel powder(saunf powder)
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice.
  • Cornflour for dusting
  • 3-4 tablespoon Oil for shallow frying


  1. In a large pan boil 4 cups of water along with salt. Once the water starts boiling add soya granules/chunks and milk. ***Milk helps remove the typical smell from the soya.
  2. Cook for 5 minutes and then switch off the flame. Allow it to cool. 
  3. Simultaneously dry roast the besan.
  4. Once the soya is cooled, strain and squeeze all the water from it. 
  5. Now put this soya chunks/granules in a mixer jar and grind it to a coarse paste.
  6. Finely chop the onion.
  7. In a large mixing bowl add the soya paste, chopped onions, mashed potatoes, all the dry spices, salt and lime juice. Mix well thoroughly.
  8. Make small tikkis of desired shape and refrigerate for 15-20 minutes.
  9. Heat a nonstick pan/grill pan with 1 tablespoon oil. Now dust the tikkis with corn flour and shallow fry until golden brown on both sides by adding oil as required.
  10. Serve as a tea time snack, starter or a side dish to your friends and family.
