Bhopali Soy Korma

Yesterday, i watched Bhopali Korma. a non-veg dish on NDTV GoodTimes. Soon after the show, i went and cooked this for our dinner. it just took less than 10 minutes to prepare this yummy, Korma. If you are in short of veggie's, then this is going to be a very good pleaser on your Lunch Table. Soy food should not be taken during dinner, as it takes longer time to digest.

For Non-veg version/the original recipe, check here. Here comes my recipe, with some customizations.

serves 2
preparation and cooking time: less than 30 minutes

Ingredients for Masala Paste:

 Coriander seeds-1 tsp
 Cumin seeds-1tsp
 Cinnamon-1/2 inch cinnamon
 Black peppercorns-8
 Bay leaves-1
 Curd-1 and 1/2 cup
 Nutmeg - a small piece
 Corriander Leaves- fistfull
 Grated Coconut- 3tsp

Ingredients for Gravy:

 Soy Chunks-10
 Garlic-4 cloves(finely chopped)
 Ginger-1/2 inch finely chopped
 Chilli Powder- 2tsp
 Vegetable Stock- 1/2 a cup
 Oil-6tbsp oil


Prepare the paste and keep it aside.

Now in a pan, heat the oil, when it splutter's, add the finely chopped ginger and garlic and roast them.

On then add, the soy chunks, which you got to boil for 5 minutes with little salt and squezze it and then wash them in cold water and squeeze them again. now mix the squezzed soya chunks along with the ginger and garlic.

Now add the Grounded paste to the pan and mix well.

Add vegetable stock, salt, chilli powder and mix. let them rest in the slow flame, till it emits oil on its sides.

Enjoy with Rice or Chapathi's.


* Don't use tangy curd, it may change the taste.

* This is a 10 minutes whip-out, with minimal work.
