Soya Butter Masala( Soy Bean in Indian Masala).

Soybeans are considered to be a source of complete protein. A complete protein is one that contains significant amounts of all the essential amino acids that must be provided to the human body because of the body's inability to synthesize them. For this reason, soy is a good source of protein, amongst many others, for vegetarians and vegans-Wikipedia. Lets have soy in our meal as simple recipes.

Soy beans (soaked overnight and cooked)-1cup
Onions big chopped-1
Crushed tomatoes-2cups
Ginger and Garlic paste-1tsp
Cumin seeds-1tsp
Cumin powder-1tsp
Coriander powder-2tsp
Garam masala-1tsp
Kashmiri Chilly powder-1tsp
Kasoori methi-1tsp (optional)
Salt to taste

Heat butter in pan, when melts add cardamon, cloves and cumin seeds. Now add the onions and ginger-garlic paste saute until raw smell of ginger-garlic leaves. Next add cumin, coriander, chilly powders, garam masala, kasoori methi and salt. Fry this masalas for a min and add the soy beans and crushed tomatoes. Add little water and cover with lid and simmer, allow to cook for 7mins. Uncover, increase flame and cook until butter floats on top. Serve hot with Nan or Pulao.
