So hence cooking healthy food is sometimes a challenge. It is very important that we take a note of the ingredients we consume. There are variety of healthy food available in the market so selecting them according to ur taste is not at all out of reach . Soy is considered to very nutrituios and is loaded with protein and calcium. I had once picked few packets of Soy granules from the supermarket which I had seldom used.
While planning for the dinner menu, I searched my pantry for any clues. Oh I got it. SOY GRANULES. WOW! what an interesting ingredient. Well I always utilizes them for curries when I ran short of veggies. So curries for tonight!. NO, not really. Suddenly I got this wonderful idea of making Soya Kebabs. I thought of doing the same way I make Shammi kababs.
I soaked some mince soya in hot water and also soaked some Channa daal.
Here is the recipe
2 cups Soya Granules minced and Soaked
½ cupChanna dal
1small onion chopped finely
1tsp Ginger paste
1 tsp Garlic minced
2 to 3 Green chillies
½ cupCoriander chopped
¼ cup Mint chopped
1tbslp Gram Masala
Lemon juice to taste
Satay sticks soaked in a water
Pressure cook the channa dal. Drain excess the liquid and grind it. Drain the water from soya mince. Heat oil on a pan . Splutter cumin seeds and fry onions. Add ginger and garlic. Finally add Channa dal paste and soya mince.
Saute for couple of minutes. Tranfer them to a bowl and add rest of the ingredients. Add salt and if u feel it is not binding, add some wheat germ or bread crumbs.
Hold the stick and carefully bind small amount of soya mixture. Line a baking tray with a foil or a baking sheet. Spray oil. Arrange them leaving enough space in between. Brush the kababs with oil.
Place the baking tray on a preheat oven. Bake them at 250 c for 10 mins. Turn those sticks and brush them with oil and then bake further for 10 mins.
Serve them with a hint of chaat masala and Lemon juice .
