Meal maker is one of my favorite I love it all time..But the one thing that turn me off is the smell which you get from it. I searched google about how to get the raw smell out of it and found this tip in one of the blog..I totally forgot in which blog I found this, so sorry about that..Adding milk to the cooking water takes off the smell from it..From that day onwards I am cooking soya chunks like that..
I was cooking so many recipes out of soya chunks recently, so I thought why not put this tip as a separate post, so that it will be helpful for all of you right..So here I am with the post…Feel free to share your way of cooking soya chunks, I would love to hear from you..
Soya Chunks / Meal Maker – 2 cups
Water – 5 cups
Milk – ½ cup
Heat milk and water in a sauce pan. Bring this to a good rolling boil.
Add in the soya chunks and switch off the flame. Cover with a tight fitting lid and leave it aside for 15-20 mins.
Drain it in a colander and wash it with lots of cold water.
Now squeeze of the extra water with your hands. Squeeze to get as much water out of it.
Now you use it as per your wish.
For making Cutlets, you can put soya chunks in a blender or food processor and pulse it for few times to make it coarse crumb.
For briyani or korma, you can cut it in half and use it.
You can use it as whole in gravies too.
