Saunfi Soyabean Curry

Saunfi Soyabean Curry

Saunfi Soyabean Curry is one of the healthiest and the easiest curry you can make. This time I thought of making curry with a slightly different flavor.

While making curry I was just thinking about what is it that I should add to get a different taste altogether. And that is when my eyes got stuck at saunf in the kitchen drawer. And I decided to use it. I added saunf powder at the end and also gave a tadka of ghee and ginger which gave the soyabean curry an ultimate taste.

This curry is very simple and easy to make. If you have soyabean at home then you can easily make this curry since the other ingredients which is being used for this recipe are easily available at home. I prefer making this more often since soyabean is a good source of protein. And the best part is everybody in my family including my daughter liked it very much.
