Boil about 4 cups of water and add about 1/2 tsp salt and the soya chunks to it. Keep closed and let it soak for 30 mins.2. Heat the oil in a pan and add the dry red chillies. To this, add the onions, capsicum, green chillies and ginger-garlic mixture. Fry for 2-3 mins on medium heat until the red chillies turn brown and the onions get transparent.3. Drain the soaked chunks and reserve the water. Squeeze them gently to remove excess water and add to the pan. Add salt and toss well, letting it cook for about 5 mins and until well combined.4. In the reserved water (adjust to get 1.5 cups water, adding more plain water if required), add the soya sauce, pureed tomato and tomato sauce. Mix well.5. Turn the heat to high and add this to the pan with the soya nuggets. Mix well on high for 30 seconds and then lower the heat to medium-low. Cook closed for 8-10 mins.6. Garnish with the spring onions, scallions and serve with rice or roti.
If you find the gravy too watery, mix 1 tsp corn flour with some water and add to the dish heating it through before removing it from fire.
