Soya Bean Sundal - How to make soya bean sundal? - navaratri recipes - Sundal recipe - Hi protein evening snacks recipe

For the dinner, I made Dosa and Sambar. So needed to get something for the protein. So decided to do Soya beans. This Sundal tastes even better than Chana. A very nutritious  and filling snack
Soya Bean- 1 cup
Red Chillies - 2
Curry leaves - few
Coconut gratings - 1 tablespoon (Optional)
Oil - 1 teaspoon
Mustard - 1/2 teaspoon
Urad Dhal - 1 teaspoon
Asafoetida - a pinch
Salt - 1/2 teaspoon or as per taste


Soak Soya Beans in water overnight or at least 6 to 7 hours. Wash and drain the water. Pressure cook along with a pinch of salt for two to 3 whistles. Do not overcook.
Drain the excess water and keep aside.
In a Kadai put the oil and when it is hot add mustard. When it pops up, add Urad Dhal and fry till brown.  Add chillies cut into pieces along with asafoetida powder and curry leaves. Fry for a while. Add cooked Soya Beans. Mix well. Add a pinch of salt if required and coconut gratings. Mix once again and remove.
