Kabuli Chana Soya Nuggets pulao

                      Vegetarians forgo the use of meat and they have to find an alternative to meet their nutritional needs. The soya chunks, derived from the soy bean work well as substitutes. They are rich source of protein. They are dry when you purchase them and they have to be reconstituted with water. So soak them in water before cooking. They absorb water, enlarge in size and becomes spongy. Basically they have no flavour but absorb the spices and other flavourings well. In the same way, Kabul channa is also rich in micro and macro nutrients. They are also a rich source of protein. So basically this recipe is a healthy one and hope you will enjoy it.
