Easy Soya Bean Curry Recipe / Soybean Curry Recipe

I love simple curries, specially when you cook with dal, you dont need to add too much ingredients in them to make it tasty. Just a simple seasoning will make those taste great. This is one of those curries, it has no onion and no tomatoes. Just few spices and you are done..

  1. Hi Aarthi
    I tried this curry and it came out well but the consistency was quite watery.. So I added some besan to get the thickness. But in ur pictorial it looks quite thick.. Is there any step missed? Or shud i cook soya and mash them?

  2. @Anonymousif your soya bean is cooked well, it releases it starch and the consistency will get thick automatically. Else you keep boiling it till it gets thick. You can even take some soya bean and puree them, then add it to the gravy too

  3. I had bought some soya beans not really knowing what to do with them. Found your recipe and made it this evening. It was really lovely. So glad that I found a use for these beans. Will definitely be cooking it again.

  4. i will try today........

  5. hi, is it okay to saute the cumin and garlic in cooker itself and then add soya directly and pressure cook ?

  6. Hi Aarthi! I too had the same problem with the consistency. But the puree part made the gravy thicker and was the taste was even better. Thank you for the great tip.

  7. Simple and healthy recipe! Thank you for the delicious recipe :)
