My kids are fond of this soya granule aka soya chunks, Even if I just shallow fry for them there would be a fight between the two of it.At times I make vegan chicken 65/ soya 65 for their lunch box and many times curry with it for roti/ chapathi.
For a day dinner I planned to make the burger and for the patties, I thought to make it with this soya chunks.Since it easily gets soaked no prior planning for making these patties is needed.
