Soya Chunks and Cauliflower Curry

A healthy and simple curry with soya chunks and cauliflower, which goes well with chapathi, rice and even dosa.

For this month's blog hop, I'm paired with Roshan of Roshan's Cucina. Her blog is mainly inspired by recipes from Kerala, God's Own Country!!! I wanted to post a Kerala recipe but ended up choosing Soya chunks curry. I tweaked the recipe slightly by adding cauliflower to the curry. I must say that with such simple  ingredients and little spices, the curry turned out very tasty.


Soya chunks – ½ cup
Cauliflower florets - 1 cup
Onion – 2 big, finely chopped
Ginger garlic paste – 1 tbsp
Tomato – 3 medium, finely chopped
Red chilly powder – ½ tsp
Pepper powder – 1 tsp
Turmeric powder – ½ tsp
Garam masala - ½ tsp
Oil – 2 tbsp
Salt - to taste
Coriander leaves - to garnish


1. Put the cauliflower florets in hot water with a pinch of turmeric powder and salt till its half cooked. Drain and rinse the florets and keep aside.

2. Add 2 ½  cups water to soya chunks and bring to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and drain after 10 minutes. Rinse the chunks in water 2-3 times and squeeze out the water.

3. Heat oil and add onion and ginger-garlic paste. Fry till the onion turns brown.

4. Then add  turmeric powder, red chilly powder, pepper powder and garam masala. Stir for a minute and add tomatoes. Mix well and add 1/2 cup water, salt and bring to boil.

5. Add soya chunks, cauliflower and mix well. Close and cook for 10-12 minutes to absorb the spices. Garnish with coriander leaves.

Serve hot.
