Soya And Spinach Curry and event entries

A quick and delicious curry that can be eated with rice, rotis, parotta, poori and it can even be made for a big group. Instead of soya chunks/meal maker you can also add boiled kabuli channa to it. Sangeeth of Art of Cooking Indian Food is hosting a calcium rich contest, and an excuse to make this recipe too. This has a flavor of kurma in it and the combo is really good.

I am also sending this entry to Sia's JFI- Soya Event

You will need :-

Soya chunks - 1 cup
Spinach - 1 bunch
Onion - 1 medium minced
Tomato - 3 pureed
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tbsp
Garam masala - 1/4 tsp
Salt to taste

For the masala:-
Coconut - 3 tbsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Sesame seeds - 1 tbsp
Green chilies - 2 nos
Red chilies - 3 nos
Coriander seeds - 2 tbsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Fennel seeds - 1/4 tsp
Cinnamon - 1 inch
Cloves - 5 nos
Fry all the above ingredients in a little oil and grind it to a fine paste.

1. Soak the soya chunks and set aside
2. Cook the spinach with a pinch of baking soda and water until fully cooked and blend it in a food processor into a paste.
3. In a deep kadai pour oil and once hot add the minced onions and pink it.

4. Now add the garam masala and the ginger garlic paste.

5. Once the raw smell of the garlic goes add the tomato puree

6. When done add the ground masala and let it simmer for 5 minutes

7. Add the soya chunks and salt and allow it to cook completely.

8. Pour in the spinach paste and let it simmer on medium flame for 5 - 10 mins
