  • First, take 5- 6cups of water and completely immerse 2 cups of soya mini chunks. Add a pinch of salt and cook for 3 - 4 minutes.
  • Once they are cooked, remove them from the heat and rinse them in cold water and squeeze dry.
  • Place a pan on medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of oil.
  • Saute coriander seeds, cumin seeds, cinnamon sticks, mace.
  • Add garlic, ginger and continue to saute.
  • Add the chopped onions and tomatoes and continue to cook for 3 minutes or until the tomato turns soft. Add mint leaves and soaked cashews.
  • Take them off the heat and blend the mixture into a smooth paste.
  • In the same pan add 2 tablespoon of oil and fry the soaked soya chunks after all the water is squeezed out.
  • Continue to fry until they turn golden brown
  • Now add the blended mixture and continue to cook as the soya chunk absorbs the flavors.
  • Add salt, coconut milk, red chili powder, and black pepper, and give it a little stir. Mix well and continue to cook until it boils.
  • Switch off the heat and garnish with Cilantro



  • Instead of coconut milk, you can add your choice of plant-based milk. Look for creamier milk options like Oat milk.
  • Choice of vegetables is wide open for this curry. Options like Peas, beans, and carrots can also make your curry extra chunky.
  • Adding Cilantro or coriander leaves is optional. Instead of coconut milk, you could also add ¼ cup of grated coconuts. Blend them along with the tomato-onion mixture.
