As we all know 'Chili Chicken'is a popular chinese dish. I tried to make another version specially for veggies who love chinese preparations. I named it as 'Chili Soya' as I have replaced Chicken with Soya chunks. It is having the same taste as that of a chili chicken but it is a veg preparation where using egg is optional. I personally recomend this recipe to all my viewer friend as it is as delicious as it looks.
100 gms Soy chunks (nuggets)(I have tried with Nutrella brand Soya)
100 gms cornflour
1 egg (Pure veggies can avoid using egg)
2 tsp. ginger garlic paste
Pinch of food color
1 large onion (cut into cubes and separate all the layers)
1 Capsicum (diced)
4 green chilly (choped)
5 Garlic cloves (chopped)
1 tbsp. soya sauce
1 tsp. Chili sauce
1 tsp vinegar
3 tbsp tomato sauce
1/2 tsp pepper powder
1 tsp red chili powder
1. Soak Soya nuggets and pressure cook with 1/2 tsp.salt. Squeeze out excess water and keep aside.
2. Mix 1/4 cup corn flour, 1 egg (optional), 1 tsp ginger garlic paste, food color, red chili powder and salt in a bowl with water to make a smooth batter (batter should be thick enough to coat the soya properly without dripping). Now heat oil in deep bottomed pan. Now deep soya chunks in the batter and drop into oil and deep fry those soy balls until it becomes Golden brown in color. Take it out and keep aside.
3. Heat oil in a nonstick flat bottomed pan. Add copped garlic and chopped chili. Now add ginger garlic paste and saute for a minute. Add onion and capsicum and saute again for 3 to 4 minutes.
4.Add soya sauce, chili sauce and vinegar. Stir vigorously and add tomato sauce, pepper powder salt and sugar. Keep on stirring for 3 to 4 minutes. Add soya balls and mix properly with the curry.
5.Mix 1 tbsp of cornflour in 1 cup cold water and pour the mixture in the pan. Add chopped spring onion. Cover with a lid and let it cook for 5 to 6 minute. when the gray become thick take it out and serve in a bowl.
Garnish with chopped spring onion and serve with Noodles or fried rice.
