Kheema or Qeema is a typical South Asian Dish. Wiki tells us that it is minced meat that can be served with the addition of vegetables or can be used to stuff naans and samosas.It can also be made into kebaks....
I have here today, a kheema made of Soya granules.....
I had half a pack of these Soya granules that I had purchased some time back wanting to include some extra protein in the kid's diet. But she did not like the chewy texture so the pack just sat there until I wanted to make this recipe for Blogging Marathon 31, Week # 3, themed - Meatless dishes.
Soya granules- 1/4 cup
Onion-1 , finely chopped
Tomato-1 finely chopped
Garlic-3 pods, thinly sliced
Ginger paste- 1/2 teaspoon
Sambar powder- 2 teaspoons
Turmeric power- a pinch
Cumin seeds- 1 teaspoons
Curry Leaves- a few
Salt to taste
- Soak the soya granules in hot water for at least 15 minutes. Squeeze out the water and keep aside.
- Heat a pan with oil and add cumin seeds and curry leaves.
- When it crackles, add the onion and garlic.Saute till the onion is translucent
