Soya chunks Peas Pulao - Soya Chunks Recipes

Today's recipe is Soya Chunks Peas Pulao. Its a wholesome one pot meal. Soya chunks are textured vegetable protein. Though they are 100% vegetarian they mimic the texture of meat and also has protein equal to meat. My daughter thinks they are chicken, so whenever I cant cook chicken will make this chunks and she loves it.
