Recipe : Soya Bhurji

I am a big soya fan, they are healthy and taste delicious when cooked properly. I can across this recipe in one the books by Tarla Dalal, and make it quite often. Bhurji is generally associated with eggs or paneer in India, but this is a unique twist to the dish. Garlic paste adds its flavour and enhances the taste of the otherwise bland soya granules. This subzi is a protein-rich potion and can be eatening with bread or chapatis.


  • Soya Granules – 1 cup (soaked in warm water for 10-15 minutes)
  • Onions – 1/2 cup (finely chopped)
  • Tomatoes – 1/2 cup (finely chopped)
  • Garlic Paste/finely chopped – 1 tsp
  • Turmeric Powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Chilli Powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Garam Masala – 1/2 tsp
  • Lemon Juice – 2 tbsp
  • Oil – 2 tbsp


  • Heat the oil in a non-stick pan, add onions and garlic paste and saute till they turn light brown.
