Nutri Kulcha

Hi friends,
This famous Street food from Punjab is finger licking good. Nutri is basically Soya chunks in a gravy.  Very quick and easy to cook. It is a full meal at any time of the day.  I prefer it when I want to have something spicy and quick. The Kulchas are easily available at bakery shops. So what are we waiting for. Let's get started.!!!!
What we need:
 Nutri Mini Soya  Chunks --- 2 cups ( if you have big chunks just cut it into 2 pieces after boiling)
Tea Bag --- 1
Onions --- 2 finely chopped
Ginger -- 2 tsp grated
Tomatoes --- 4 medium sized grinded to a fine paste. ( You can use 6 tsp tomato puree alternately) 
Green chillies --- 2 grinded with tomatoes.
Cumin seeds --- 2 tsp
Cumin powder --- 2 tsp
Coriander powder -- 2 tsp
Turmeric powder --- Three fourth tsp
Kashmiri red chilli powder --- 2 tsp
Kasuri Methi ---- 2 tsp
Garam masala ----  2 tsp
Mango Powder (aamchoor) ---- 2 tsp
Soya sauce dark --- 2 tsp
Cooking Oil ----- 6 tsp
Butter ---- 4 tsp
Ghee ------ 4 tsp
Salt to taste.
Here we go:
Boil Nutri Soya chunks in 6 cups of water along with tea bag and one tsp if salt till soft. Drain water but don't discard the water. Keep it to be later used in gravy. Press the Soya chunks with a spatula and drain excess water. Chunks will now be of blackish colour because of tea bag. 
Heat a pan and add oil to it. Now add cumin seeds when they start spluttering add finely chopped onions to it. 
Saute till onions turn reddish in colour. Add grated ginger and 4 tsp water to it. When water evaporates and mixture turns homogeneous , add tomato chilli paste and kasuri methi to it. 
Now add salt , Turmeric powder , coriander powder, Kashmiri red chilli powder , cumin powder and saute till oil separates from the masala.
Add Soya chunks , butter  and saute for 2 minutes.
Add the tea water we have kept aside and adjust the consistency of gravy. 
Add mango powder , garam masala and Ghee. 
Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. 
Garnish with ginger jullians and fresh coriander. 
For Kulchas :
Heat a nonstick pan . 
Smear butter on kulcha with a brush.
Then roast it in  pan from both the sides till golden brown. Accompany it with green chilli and jullians of onion dipped in lemon juice. 
Your street food of Nutri Kulcha is ready. Don't  bother about calories 😉 . Just  Enjoyyyyyy. 
* While putting salt in gravy remember there is Salt in soya chunks also. 
* A little Turmeric powder enhances colour but too much of it will spoil the taste and colour both.
