Step 1: Puff the Chunk
Generally soya chunks are looks like and feel like (almost) meat. You can also just use soaked soya chunks which will be suitable but in order to incorporating salt into it, Add the soya chunks in water with salt, boil it for 7 mins or until water becomes frothy.
Step 2: Squeeze and Drain
Filter it from boiling water and add it to normal water. Squeeze it to remove excess water as it will make our dish soggy or else.
Step 3: Marination
Initially add curd , followed by spices mentioned under marination, mix well. Now add Soya chunks for coating it and leave it for 30 mins
Step 4: Chop Chop
slice the onions vertically and thin. Cut the tomato and blend to obtain fine puree
Step 5: Tempering
Add 2 tsp of gingelly oil or ground nut oil or olive oil or even coconut oil to nice aroma, add the tempering item at low flame and once the smell comes out add onion and fry until golden brown now add ginger garlic paste, coriander powder, chilli powder, salt.
Step 6: Chunk and Puree
Now add the marinated chunks and fry until the water evaporates from the curd and masala absorption. Finally add tomato puree and check for salt requirement.
Step 7: Simmer
Thanks to my Red tomatoes, gravy came out really vibrant red without adding food coloring, looking like authentic chicken dish. Now only left is tomato puree to boil, so close the lid and let it boil for 15 mins. Meanwhile prepare a dish to accommodate with this
Step 8: Roti
Wheat flour - 1 cup
Water - 1 cup
salt - 1/2 tsp
Ghee or clarified butter - 1 tsp
Take wheat flour, mix with water add salt and ghee, convert to dough. Adjust water accordingly to the need, dough should be soft and squishy
Make small balls from it, add flour and roll it for it to be non - sticky. Ideal shape of Roti is round , but to be honest i can't roll it like that in round shape, it does take lot of patience as the dough will rotate while you apply pressure on you roller.
so my shortcut is to cut it out using round object, in this case round bowl... Your round roti is ready !!
