Nutrela Soya Chaap Recipe
If you are a soya chaap lover like me, this curry recipe is worth a try. I am sharing a finger-licking good Punjabi-style masala soya chaap recipe —the ultimate vegetarian comfort food from North India.
Soya Chaap is mock meat or vegan meat made with soya beans. In Northern India, the ribs of mutton or meat are called chaap. The soya meat is wrapped around wooden sticks to give a vegetarian leg-piece-like appearance. Hence, the name soya chaap.
The soya chaap is not always gluten-free because many manufacturers use all-purpose flour to bind the dough. So read the label carefully if you want gluten-free soya meat.
Across North India, the soya sticks are creatively used to make various vegetarian dishes. The reason for their popularity is the chicken-like texture and the ability to absorb the flavor of the curry. In addition, the soya meat adds a great variety to the vegetarian menu.
