Soya chunks fry recipe / Meal Maker Fry recipe / Soya Varuval recipe

Standard

Soya chunks is commonly known as meal maker, which is protein rich food and acts as a substitute of non-vegetarian’s protein. Meal Maker is also good for weight loss, usually in mom’s place we don’t ever use soya chunks or meal maker, but came across this soya chunks / meal maker through my mother-in-law. My mother-in-law goes very often to temple, every day she has a reason to avoid non-veg and so soya chunks / meal maker is being the substitute for many of her dishes right from Biryani till Kootu and fry.

I have also shared few soya chunks / meal maker recipes like Soya chunks Roast, Soya chunks kurma, Soya chunks Pulao, Soya chunks Briyani / Meal Maker Biryani, Soya Paratha, Soya Tikki / Meal Maker Cutlet, and Aloo Soya Gravy.
