Last week my mom's backache got pathetic and we were planning to order dinner from outside. But don't know what struck me and I pulled out a recipe book by Tarala Dalal from bookshelf. (I can’t cook without a recipe book, I should learn to cook.) I explored entire book. I stopped over a recipe called 'Soya Mutter Ki Subzi'. I thought, 'let me try out this one.' My mom was quite relieved to know that I am taking the charge of the kitchen.
Soon I got done with the preparation part with a bowl of fresh green peas, paste of green chillies, ginger and garlic, mixture of curd, milk, gram flour, and water, and of course cubes of cottage cheese. (The original recipe needs soya nuggets, but I replaced them with cottage cheese). I rolled up sleeves of my shirt and started stirring, tossing, mixing and simmering. I bent forward and filled my nostrils with the spicy aroma. ‘Hmmm, it seems that I can make a good cook,’ thought I.
Soon we all were enjoying the tangy and spicy vegetable with hot rotis and steamed rice. I received compliments from my mom, dad and sister. Here is the recipe of 'Soya Mutter Ki Subzi' by Tarla Dalal. Try it out!!!
SOYA MUTTER KI SUBZI

Cooking Time : 40 mins.

You can use mushrooms or paneer instead of the soya nuggets as a variation.
It sounds delicious, isn’t it? Well, I know it is mouthwatering. Try it out, and don’t forget to leave me a comment if you liked it. All credit goes to Tarla Dalal, a famous Indian chef.
