  • 2 cup soya chunks (100g)


  • 2 tablespoon corn flour
  • 2 tablespoon All purpose flour (Maida)
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • 2 stalk Spring onion (White bulb)
  • 1 number Bell pepper
  • 1 tablespoon garlic (crushed)
  • 1 teaspoon ginger (crushed)
  • 4 number dried red chilli
  • 2 tablespoon chilli sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soya sauce
  • 2 tablespoon tomato ketchup
  • Oil
  • salt


  • white sesame seed
  • Spring onion green



  1. Place the soya chunks in a bowl and fill it up with enough hot boiling water so that the soya chunks are completely immersed. Close the bowl with a lid. Leave it aside for 20 minutes.

  2. After soaking in water, the soya chunks would appear double in volume. Squeeze all the water from the soya chunks. Cut soya chunks into two pieces.

  3. Separate the spring onion white bulb from the green stalk. Chop the white bulb into small pieces. Cut the green part of the spring onion and keep it aside for garnish. Cut bell pepper into thin strips. Split dried red chilli and have it ready. I did it in the chopper.


  1. Mix ingredients listed under marination - corn flour, all purpose flour, chilli powder, and salt. Marinate soya chunks pieces with the mix. Keep it aside for 30 minutes.

Fry and Sautee in Sauce

  1. Heat oil in a kadai. Deep fry the marinated soya chunks/meal maker pieces until golden brown. Fry it in small batches evenly. Don't over fry the soya. It can turn hard. Drain them in kitchen tissues.

  2. In the same kadai, remove excess oil. Use rest of the oil for the sauce preparation. In medium flame, saute ginger and garlic in the same pan.

  3. Once it's sauteed well, add dried red chilli and chopped spring onion white bulbs. Give a stir.

  4. Add chopped bell pepper. Saute them well until soft. Add oil as needed.

  5. Mix chilli sauce, soya sauce and tomato ketchup. Add the sauces into the pan. Mix it well. Taste the gravy and add the sauce, if needed according to your taste. Adjust salt. If you find, sauces are getting dry, sprinkle some water.

  6. In medium high flame, add fried soya chunks pieces. Mix everything well. Stir it well for a couple of minutes, until soya chunks get coated well with the sauces. Adjust the sauces and salt as per your taste. Be careful with soya sauce.

  7. At the end, toss in half of the spring onion greens.

  8. Garnish with the rest of spring onion greens and sesame seeds. Serve it immediately, or else it will turn soggy. Enjoy 🙂
