Soya bean is very nutritious and a great source of protein. It is also a best replacement of non-diary protein. Apart from beans soya bean is easily available in granules form and as well as chunks form. Soya granuales are very versatile and can be used in making patties, paranthas or some times in desserts also.Here I am using Soya granules to prepare a tasty dish with peas. It is called vegetarian keema matar.
