250 gms soya nuggets
1 large onion
8 large cloves garlic
2 “ ginger piece
5-6 green chilies or more

3 sprig mint leaves
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp cumin powder

Put soya chunks in a large bowl and cover with boiling water.
Add 1-2 tbsp of salt. Stir and keep covered for 30 mins.
Drain the hot water and cover with tap water.
Wash and squeeze the chunks to remove all water and transfer to a bowl.
Now add all ingredients except bread crumbs to a food processor bowl and mince finely. Do in batches if required.
Transfer the mixture to a bowl and add 3-4 tbsp breadcrumbs and mix. The mixture should not be very sticky.
Check seasonings and add more breadcrumbs if required.
Heat a pan and add oil for shallow frying. Keep medium flame.
Take a handful of mixture and shape into long tubes. Use a skewer or chopstick or a handle of a large spoon to roll the mixture around it to get a typical kabab shape and also to have a hole between the kabab.
Add few kababs at a time to hot oil and fry till brown on all sides. It doesn’t take too long to cook.Transfer to a serving dish.
Serve with any dip of your choice or make wraps on pita bread along with few slices of chopped tomato and onion.
