Soya chunks Kurma- Soya Chunks Recipes

Here I am with another recipe using soya chunks - Soya Chunks Kurma. It is a flavorful gravy with soya chunks. When I made the soya chunks peas pulao, everyone at home absolutely loved it. Specially, Thaara. Though she recovered from her stomach bug, she does not have apetite at all. She refuses to eat anything. So I made this kurma with soya chunks, she relished it. But you know how she ate? Yogurt rice with this soya chunks from kurma. As long as she eats, any combo is fine with me. I made this for lunch, had with rice and for evening, we had it with paratha too. What I mean to convey is that its so versatile. This gravy has become a hit in my home. Hope it becomes a hit with you guys too.  Try it and let me know.
