Just remember to soak the soya nuggets in warm water for at least 10 minutes before using them.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Pragna, Thanks a lot for sharing your comment. We would not recommend using whole soyabeans as they contain some anti-nutritional factors which are usually removed while processing. Happy Cooking!!

Nice blend of chana and soya chunks makes a healthy subzi.
