How to make Soya Chaap Masala

Step – 2 Saute onions in the kadhai

In the same kadhai, add black cardamom, green cardamom, bay leaf, cloves, and cinnamon stick. Saute for 2-3 mins. Then add onions, and saute till they turn golden brown in color. Now, add 1 tbsp water and stir to mix well. Cook for at least 2 more minutes.

Step – 3 Prepare the masala

Add red chili and dried ginger powder. Stir to mix well and then cook for 2 mins. Then add 2 tbsp of water and mix well. Lower the gas flame and pour lightly beaten yogurt. Stir so that the yogurt doesn’t curdle. Now, add salt and cook for 5 minutes.

Step – 4 Add fried soya chaap to the masala.

Once done, add fennel powder followed by soya chaap. Mix well and then add 1 1/2 cups of hot water. Cook for 5 minutes and then add in garam masala. Cook for 2 mins and check if the soya chaap masala is ready. If the curry is thick, add water and cook for a while.
