Soya  Do Pyaza / Soya Masala Curry Recipe

Soya Do Pyaza / Soya Masala Curry Recipe

My last recipes to this week’s soya series is again a curry i.e. Soya Do Pyaza. The name of the dish itself explains that this is an onion based dish. Do pyaza means double the quantity of onion. Here onion is used in two ways- finely chopped that becomes a part of the gravy and provide it flavor when cooked along with tomatoes and quartered that are lightly sauteed with capsicum and added afterwards to give a crunch to the curry. Not only onion, but soya used is also of two types – Soya granules and soya chunks. Since soya itself is quite bland, so the curry is heavily spiced to make it such a delectable dish that even those who run away from soya would love to dunk into it. Paired with any Indian bread, it makes a delightful meal.

    1. yeah, you can use. But chicken masala gives a very pronounced flavor. I’m also a vegetarian and was skeptical in using chicken masala earlier. Once, one of my brahmin friend used it. Then I read all its ingredients and finding nothing objectionable, started using it.
