Benefits of Soya and Chana Dal:
Soya and Chana Dal are sources of plant-based protein. Soya may help in reducing your cholesterol levels and promoting good heart health. It also aids in weight loss. Chana Dal is very popular in Indian households, and we can use it in a number of dishes. It is rich in Vitamin B complex, folic acid, and antioxidants. So now you must have known that soya granules and chana dal together make a high-protein dish. Without any delay, let's learn about this recipe.
How to Make Soya Chana Dal Bhurji:
Soya granules give a meaty texture to this dish, while the crunch comes from the chana dal. This bhurji will prove to be a great addition to your lunch. First of all, to make this dish, soak Chana dal for at least half an hour. (If you want, you can also cook the dal first with 3 whistles; it will take less time to cook while making Bhurji.) Now, heat the oil in a pan, first add dry red chillies and finely chopped onions, and fry till they become translucent. Add asafoetida and green chillies and fry the soya granules with oil and onions so that their rawness goes away. Add finely chopped tomato and saute it for some time. Take out the water from the gram dal, add it, and mix well.
