Took a break and back to blog world with a recipe "Soya Pulao"

Here I come with "Soya Biryani" after a month break...Oooh...
This recipe is so easy and my son loved it so much.
Soya chunk - 2 cups
Onion - 1
Gingergarlic paste - 1 tsp
Coriander leaves - 1/4 cup
Pulao masala - 11/2 tsp
Jeera - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Cooked basmati rice - 2 cups
Butter/Oil - 1 tsp
Pressure cook Soya chunks with turmeric and salt. Switch off after one whistle. That should be enough.
Squeeze out the water from the chunks through the drainer(I used pasta drainer) and keep it aside.

Heat oil in a pan, add jeera into it. Add Onion and once its light brown, add ginger garlic paste, salt, coriander leaves. Stir it till the raw smell of ginger garlic paste is gone.
Now add the Pulao masala (I used MTR Pulao masala). Let it cook for 5 - 10 minutes till the masala gets coated into the chunks. You could add chilli powder if you want it spicy.
Add the cooked rice and mix it well. The Soya Pulao is ready to eat.
It goes well with onion raita.
