Hi!Todays recipe is that which can be prepared in very less time.I do this when i am getting late for the meal.There is a story behind this recipe whenever i make this recipe i remember the situation.In my childhood i attended the function in a village with my mom.as you all know in villages its not a buffet system of serving.When they are serving this recipe me & my mom asked not to serve non-veg still they did,at that time my mom's aunt told that its not keema(minced meat of lamb)its a soy granule fry.We were surprised,when we are tasting the dish we still have doubt...It was 100% tasted like kheema.I love non-veg so obviously i loved this fry and i always ask my mom to cook very frequentlly.She also enjoy in making because it takes only few minutes.Later when i grew i could know the importance of soya(i.e very high in protein).It has many health benefits,i will try to list out later.Lets go to the recipe.
