Spicy Soy Wadian

I am not a fan of Soy but when I visit my Dad's friends they make this for Biriyani... When ever this was cooked with Biriyani at home I find an excuse not to have it but later I started liking its taste and then gradually I included Soy in cooking. This is a very simple dish can be cooked under 15 mins and thats the best thing I like about it...



Ingredients:

Soy Wadi - 1 1/2 cups
Red Potatoes - 3 nos. Medium
Onion - 1 large finely chopped
Tomato - 1 large, ripe - finely chopped or mashed
Red Chilli Powder - 1 1/2 tbsp
Tumeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala - 1/2 tbsp
Amchoor Powder - 1/2 tsp (Dry Mango Powder)
Freshly ground Pepper - 1/4 tbsp
Cooking Oil - 3 tbsps
Salt to taste
Water
Cilantro for garnishing.

Method:

1. Soak Soy in Water for 30-40 mins. Drain and squeeze Water and set aside.
2. Heat a non stick pan with Oil and fry sliced Potatoes for 5-6 mins.
3. In the meantime heat another pan with 1 tbsp of Oil and fry Onions.
4. After about a minute add all Masalas except Dry Mango Powder and cook for a few mins.



5. Add Tomatoes cover and cook for 2 mins. If Potatoes are cooked remove and add drained Soy and stir for a min or so, when the color changes remove from flames.
6. Now add the Potatoes, Soy Wadis and Dry Mango Powder and cook for another 2 mins with 1/2 cup Water.
7. Adjust Salt and Pepper. Garnish wuth Cilantro and serve hot.

Note: You can skip frying the Soy Wadi, some dont like the color of Soy so when frying they turn brown

Serve with: Roti, Dosa, Pulav or Biriyani
