A lovely subzi recipe from West Bengal. Big cubes of potatoes are deep-fried and mixed with marinated soya chunks. Irresistible, really! I have used soya milk and curds to marinate the chunks. Soya milk is easily available these days in different flavours; however for the subzi make sure you use unsweetened plain soya milk.
