SOYA KEEMA BALLS

Soya nuggets ( also know as meal maker / soya chunks)  has  protein content equal to that of meat. They are odourless ,tasteless spongy and easy to cook.They also easily absorb any flavors that you cook them with.Considering the health benefits it offers, I make it a point to include it in our diet often. Its also good that my kids also love these soya nuggets.

Once when i had served these soya kheema fritters to one of my non veg friend she was so surprised to know that it was a veg dish . As per her soya nuggets fritters looked exactly and tasted almost like a famous chettinad mutton dish called " Kola Urundai ". This was new to me.On curiosity i did some googling n was amazed by the similarity both the dishes had. Hence felt " Vegetarian Kola Urundai " one of the apt name for this dish. One more best thing about this snack is.. though it is deep fried, it won't absorb much oil if done properly.So what are you waiting for? Go ahead, try it out .. I 'm sure you would love it..

NOTE:

  • Squeezing out excess water is a must...Else when you grind, the soya chunks will become watery and will not hold together to form balls.
  • The dough should be such that you should be able to form a ball. If its watery you will not be able to make proper balls also it will absorb more oil . In case its watery add some more besan n rice flour to bind it together.
  • You can use soya granules too... then you need not grind them. Just grind other requirements and mix with granules..
  • While dropping the ball in the oil , keep the flame on medium n later cook on low flame on low only. Else it will brown easily on the outside but the inside will be uncooked.
  • If you want you can add some grated carrot too...
