How to make Soya 65

  1. In a bowl keep hot water, add salt and milk. Soak the soya chunks to 20 minutes. Now it will be double in size. Wash it completely 3 to 4 times with water to remove the smell of it. And squeeze the chunks as much as u can.
  2. It should be very dry so squeeze completely. Take a big bowl add the dry soya chunks. Add all the masala one by one. Add very little salt as we have already added salt while soaking the soya nuggets.
  3. Add curd, corn flour, besan, rice flour and bind them well. Add curry leaves and mix well. Let this rest for 15 minutes. Before you start going to fry, 5 minutes before, add lemon juice and mix well one last time.
  4. Keep oil for frying and start frying in a batch until you gets nice golden brown colour. Transfer them on to a paper towel to absorb excess oil completely.
  5. Server this hot soya 65 with ketchup or chilli sauce or with mint chutney.
