    Soya chunks should measure atleast 100 gms in the above recipe.Hi Rajeshwari, another tasty simple soyachunks fry is boil the soya chunks with chilli powder,turmeric powder and salt for 2 mins in water, then put the chunks in cold water for a min and squeeze the excess water(don't dedhape them) and put chilli powder,turmeric powder and salt and mix them well and shallow fry them with curry leaves.
