This Viral Green Soya Pulao Is Perfect For Your Next Vegan Meal

One of the best ways to include protein in a vegan diet is by eating soya or soybeans. About 100 gm of soya chunks contain 52 gm protein. If you mix them with rice, you can create a meal rich in protein as well as carbohydrates, everything that you need to keep the body energetic. This amalgamation of ingredients will help you create a flavourful dish for a lazy day.

The version of the green soya pulao recipe was shared by Adhya, a digital food content creator and certified nutrition coach with a huge presence on Instagram and YouTube. She shared this recipe on Instagram a day ago, and it already has more than 4.5 million views. It is definitely a worthy try, especially if you think that plant-based meals are bland or lack flavours and taste.

Internet Reaction To Green Soya Pulao Recipe

An Instagram user said that she tried this recipe and it worked so well for her. Another fan of Adhya wrote that she would be trying it at home for lunch. A user on the platform commented that you can make it more delicious and nutritious by adding more vegetables like baby potatoes and cauliflower. 

If you thought that this recipe was only for vegans or vegetarians, a user wrote that she replaced soya chunks with chicken, and it was yummy. The content creator mentioned in the caption that you can also experiment with seasonal vegetables like green peas, carrots, broccoli, and others. 

Recipe Of Green Soya Pulao

You have to begin by soaking soya chunks in hot water for 5-10 minutes so that they become soft after absorbing water. While that happens, you prepare green coriander and chilli chutney on the side. It can have ginger, apple cider vinegar, onion and garlic for a mix of earthy and tangy notes. 

The ‘hatke’ thing about this recipe is you have to cook the chutney in the tempering of spices. It will infuse more flavours into the paste, and it will become thick like any gravy you prepare with onion, tomato, cashew paste, and other ingredients. 

Adhya added diced tomato for added colour and taste, but you can skip this part and pour in soaked rice and soya chunks into the gravy, add spices, cover the lid of the pressure cooker, and cook until you hear a whistle. This delicious dish will make it to the list of your comfort meals, and since it is a one-pot recipe that can be prepared in no time, you can serve it to guests who come unannounced. You can relish it with a mix-veg, boondi, or any other variety of raita.
