Crunchy Soya Chunks Salad Recipe

Crunchy soya chunks salad is so fresh made with lemon juice and chili flakes, this can be perfect for potlucks if serve it over spiralized cucumbers, sweet and fresh roasted corns, fine chopped grape tomatoes and onions with minty touch. 

I'm in love with soya beans these days and I am having so much of fun cooking lately. It's a great source of protein and becoming quite popular around. It's wonderful in salads, side dish and rice dishes. I miss mama's special soya bean curry and soya bean biryani, she would just turn golden chunks into yummy and irresistible delights. 

In India and here I can easily find soya chunks in any natural foods market, but I realize some of you may not be as lucky, if soya chunks are nearly available to you, I highly encourage you to try it in different ways! Quick, simple, easy and crunchy salad recipe that takes less than 10 minutes to cook and teams up well with any main dish, they are so good I could have easily eaten two servings. Present the way you want, but always serve it hot for crunchier bites.

Crunchy Soya Chunks Salad Recipe

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 8-10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 2 persons

1 bowl boiled soya chunks
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon finely chopped onions
1 teaspoon mustard seeds or rai 
1 tablespoon red chili powder
1 teaspoon coriander powder
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Salt to taste

  • In a pot, add 2 cups of water and bring it to boil, add 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1 cup soya chunks. Allow it to boil until the chunks turn delicately soft and spongy. Transfer it into the colander and strain all the water from the chunks by pressing down with the help of a spoon.
  • In a frying pan, drizzle some olive oil and add mustard seeds. Once they began to splutter, add together the boiled soya chunks, red chili powder, coriander powder and salt to taste, allow it to cook until the texture becomes golden brown and crisp from outside.
  • Once cooked, squeeze lemon juice and adjust the salt and piquancy as needed. Garnish with chopped onion. You can also garnish with chopped tomatoes, chopped cilantro or mint and even sweet corn, we prefer light and simple with chicken or vegetable curry!
