Pilau with soya chunks

Recipes - By Wambui Kuria | August 16th 2014 at 12:00:00 GMT +0300

Pilau with a difference. Soya chunks are a great protein and lighter on the body than beef. Healthier and cheaper and a dish for vegetarians. Add potatoes if you so wish.

  2. 1. Easy recipe: Beef meat balls with cheddar and mozzarella
  3. 2. Easy Recipe: Ndove za nyama (Green bananas in coconut and beef)

  • 1 cup rice (500g)
  • 2 large onions
  • 1 clove crushed garlic
  • 1 crushed ginger
  • 20g whole (uncrushed) pilau masala
  • ¼ cup salad oil
  • 1 pack soya chunks
  • 1¾ cups cold water
  • Salt to taste

Directions:

Soak whole uncrushed pilau masala in cold water for 2-3mins then drain water. In a hot pan, put the pilau masala toss until dry. Once dried, blend the pilau masala and set aside.

In a cooking pot, fry onions until golden brown, add garlic, ginger, salt, pilau masala, allow to cook for 2-3 mins, add the soya chunks and a cup of water and let simmer until water has almost dried up but not totally dry.

Add the 1¾ water and bring to a boil, then add the rice and let boil until water level has gone down. (It should not be totally dry-level of rice).

Once the water level has gone down, set the cooking pot aside, cover the cooking pot with foil paper and pot cover and let rice cook with its own steam for 20 mins.

Fluff the rice, spoon into a serving dish. Serve with kachumbari.
