How To Prepare:
- Heat a pan and dry roast 2 tsp of gram flour for 1-2 min. Once the color changes a bit, slide the flour into a small bowl and allow it to cool.
- In a pan add oil and salt, once the water starts boiling add the soya chunks and cook for 10 min. Once done strain the chunks. After it cools press them between 2 palms and remove all the excess water. Keep the pressed chunks aside.
- Now for the green paste, take a mixer jar, add in coriander, mint and green chillies. Make a fine paste of it.
- Take a mixing bowl, and let us prepare the marinade. Add hung curd, gram flour, salt, green paste and all other spices. Give it a nice stir and enjoy the lovely green color.
- Time to add in our soya chunks, capsicum, tomato and onions. Give this a gentle mix.
- Once done, keep the bowl in the fridge to rest for 30-40 min, so the masalas can stick well to soya chunks and veggies.
- Keep a tawa on medium flame. Take a skewer and add soya chunks, capsicum, onion and tomatoes one by one, and repeat the process for all skewers.
- Grease the tawa with some oil, and put the skewers on tawa. After it is golden brown on one side, flip it over to cook on all sides.
- Our delicious hariyali soya tikkas are ready on a tawa without the grill or BBQ. Serve it hot with salad and green chutney.
Note: If you do not have skewers you can use toothpicks or just roast this on tawa directly. You can also use paneer or tofu instead of soya.
