Stepwise pictures:


  1. You can follow the same recipe using Rajma/Red Kidney Beans instead of Soya beans. If so, you need to soak the beans in water overnight.
  2. If you don’t like bits and pieces of ginger coming in your mouth, grate ginger instead of chopping it. I chopped just because I like it that way.
  3. Check for the spice level before adding chilli powder because, ginger and green chilli already gives the dish some spiciness.
