Soya Chunks are made of soy flour from which oil has been extracted. Soya Chunks are rich in Omega 3, polyunsaturated fats, proteins, calcium and iron. Soy has a high fibre content which increases metabolism, keeps stomach full for a long time and aids in easy digestion. But taking them in large quantities may damages liver as it increases the uric acid in body .

I have added other veggies too to complete  or increase the nutrient content. This is easy recipe and can be made for parties as well or made regularly. Its a one pot meal recipe so less utensils are used!
