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

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.

  • Heat a pan, add ¼ tsp of butter, spread it all over the pan, pour a spoonful of batter, at the center of the pan and spread it gently to a small circle.
  • Drizzle butter along the sides and little over top of the pancake.
  • Cook only in medium flame, otherwise it would get burnt.
  • After it starts leaving the sides of the pan, gently flip the side and cook on both sides.
  • Again drizzle, ¼ tsp of butter along the sides of the pan.
  • Remove it from fire, once it cooked.

Serve it hot with Honey or Maple syrup or Palm jaggery syrup or Hershey’s chocolate syrup. I have served it with palm jaggery syrup, as I have not added sugar to it.
