Notes

  • If you ask any kid, about their favorite vegetable, chances are you will hear something with potato. For example, aloo gobhi, aloo ka parantha, jeera aloo, aloo sandwich, and so on. Therefore, if your kids are fond of potatoes, you can also add potatoes in this soya chunks masala so that they get both carbs and protein. If you are cooking for a diabetic, or are on keto diet, skip potato.
  • Garam masala can be added to give it a punch.
  • You can also add mango powder that improves digestion and fights acidity. Consuming mango powder on a regular basis, by adding it to your dishes, may help you in improving your digestive system.
