Soya Curry

It has been very long since we pen down. Life has become so busy in tackling kids and balancing work with family (especially when the kids are picky eaters). We would like to prepare and offer him different dishes to increase his appetite..But somehow our boy is a sweet boy who eats only sweety sweety items and nothing else..Amidst of running behind/begging/praying to feed him, somehow we found little time to prepare this dish. Soya is protein rich and it would contain the daily protein content in one serving. Thanks to Maheswari(publishtoday.blogspot) who is the owner of this recipe. It has been in mind since she posted the recipe, but was hesitant since she had mentioned it tastes like mutton/beef. Finally, its here.
