Soya Roganjosh (Serves 5)

Roganjosh
Here is a humble attempt to create the vegetarian twin of the highly popular Roganjosh (mutton simmered with several spices). Believe me friends, it was delicious and is really a great sidedish for chapathis and flavored rice plates.  I am sure, all my vegetarian readers will be delighted to see this post and hope you all will try this and enjoy!!!

Preparation
Wash the soya chunks 3 times under running water. Soak them in water for 20 minutes. Drain the water and then boil the soya chunks for 10 minutes on stove top. Drain the water again and allow to cool down. Squeeze out extra water, if any. Set aside.
Heat oil in a pressure cooker and add the bay leaf and cinnamon. Add onions and saute till golden brown. Next add the tomatoes and cook until they become soft. Add the ground paste and mix well, followed by adding turmeric powder, red chilly powder and salt. Mix well and cook for a couple more minutes. Next add the yogurt and garam masala. Mix in the soya chunks and cook for 2 more minutes. Add water and cook covered until 1 whistle. Allow the pressure to release by itself. Open lid and give a final mix. Garnish with coriander leaves. Soya roganjosh is ready!!!
