Soy Kebabs

If you are a vegetarian and looking for an easy protein packed appetizer, look no further. Try these Soy Kebabs which are full of protein and makes it an easy and delicious starter.  I have been wanting to make these kebabs for a while, with so many things going on I had to push it back on my list.

DSC_3320-1I am a non vegetarian but always looking for veg option as I prefer vegetarian over non vegetarian.  Not sure why, but it has always been the case.  I adapted this recipe from my mother in law who makes them often.  These kebabs are so easy to make, I just made it for lunch time snack and they are all gone.  My husband who prefers non veg also said, these came out so good.


These kebabs are soft on the inside with a crunch on the outside.  No one will be able to make out that they are made of soy.Make them for your next party and it will be a hit.

 Ingredients:

  • 1.5 cups Soy chunks or granules (used Soy Chunks)
  • 1 small onion, used red
  • 1 inch of ginger
  • 1-2 green chilies
  • cilantro
  • 1.5 tsp Shaan Lahori Fish Masala
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala
  • 1/4 tsp red chili powder
  • 2 tsp besan
  • 2 tsp rice flour/corn flour
  • 1-2 tsp bread crumbs

Directions:

First boil the soy chunks for at least 10 minutes and drain it in the cold water. Try to get the excess water out by squeezing it and set aside.

DSC_3310-1In a blender, blend the chunks so that it kind of become a paste.  Add onion, cilantro, ginger, and green chili. Blend it again so that everything mixed well.

DSC_3311-1Take the mixture out in a mixing bowl and add all the spices along with besan, rice flour and bread crumbs. You might have to adjust besan and rice flour to make sure that the soy mixture binds together.

Heat the oil in a frying pan.  Give them a round or a kebab shape whichever is convenient  for you.  I was in a hurry so I made them round.

DSC_3312-1Slide them one by one in the hot oil while giving them the shape.  You can turn the heat to medium so that they are cooked all the way.

Fry them until you acquire the desired color.  Place them on a paper towel to soak the excess oil.  Serve hot with mint chutney or dates and tamarind chutney of your choice.
