  • 1 cup soya chunks (meal maker)
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 small cinnamon stick (dalichini)
  • 2 cloves (loung)
  • 2 medium size onions finely sliced
  • 1 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • 3 tomatoes. chopped
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • salt to taste
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp coriander powder (dhania powder)
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder (jeera powder)
  • 1/4 tsp garam masala powder
  • 3 tbsp yogurt (dahi or curd)
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves


Boiling the meal maker:

  • Take a cooking vessel, add enough water, add some salt and bring it to a boil.
  • Add the soya chunks or the meal maker into the water.
  • Let them boil for 5-6 minutes.
  • Switch off the flame.
  • Strain the chunks and run them under cold water.
  • Squeeze out the water from the chunks.
  • Set them aside.

Making of tomato puree:

  • Add 3 chopped tomatoes in a blender, add some salt, red chilli powder and puree them finely.

Making of the curry:

  • Take a wok, add oil and heat it.
  • Add the cinnamon stick, bay leaf, cloves and saute for for few seconds.
  • Add the sliced onions and let them cook until they turn slight brown in color.
  • Add ginger garlic paste and saute for few seconds.
  • Add the tomato puree into it.
  • Add dry spices such as salt, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, garam masala powder.
  • Mix well.
  • Cook the gravy on low flame until oil appears at the sides.
  • Add yogurt, mix and cook the gravy until oil releases.
  • Add water, add the boiled and squeezed soya chunks.
  • Mix well.
  • Cover and cook for about 5 to 8 minutes on low flame.
  • Lastly, add coriander leaves and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Serve hot with pulao.


  • In this recipe, I have used sliced onions, but one can also make a paste of boiled onions and add  in place of sliced onions.
  • If using onion paste, then the onion paste have to be sauteed for 2-3 minutes on low flame before adding ginger garlic paste.
  • Rest of the procedure can be followed the same way as mentioned.
