Chilli Soy Nuggets
I adapted this recipe from a magazine called New Woman that I was browsing thru on my trip to India last year. It can be served as an appetizer or side dish with fried rice.
Here's how I made it:
1 cup soy nuggets - soak in warm salted water for 15-30 mins
Veggies - Onions, colored peppers, carrots - cut into matchsticks or smaller pieces as desired
Oil - 2 tsp
1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp vinegar
1 tsp hot sauce (I used Sriracha)
additional salt if needed
pinch of sugar (I used brown sugar)
Spring onion, cilantro for garnish
Heat the oil in a large wok. Fry the veggies till slightly cooked but still crunchy. Fry the ginger-garlic paste for a minute. Add the soy sauce, vinegar and hot sauce. Drain the soy nuggets, squeeze out as much water as possible. Add to the wok. Stir fry on medium high heat till nicely coated with the sauces. Add salt and sugar. Take off heat. Garnish with cilantro/spring onions and serve hot.
