Soya Chunks Kuruma | Side Dish For Roti


Here is yet another tasty side dish for Parotta/ Roti/ Chapathi. We will never get bored of chapathis or rotis if it is served with different side dishes. This gravy is very simple to make and moreover is a good alternative to non- vegetarian gravies. Though I used to make it atleast couple of times a month, somehow I never took effort to post it. So when I prepared it today, I clicked the pictures and drafted them immediately.
