Soya Chunks Biryani along with Yummy Frittata

As a kid, I used to eat these Chunks or meal maker, which I loved a lot. Soya chunks cutlet, pulav, korma or biryani…. whatever it is, I love it from my heart. Though it does not have any flavor, it has the tendency of absorbing any flavors you dunk them in. Many varieties of dishes can be prepared using these chunks.

Soya chunks are very good for health. They are rich in vitamins, minerals and they also help to reduce cholesterol. These are the best sources of essential omega-3 fatty acids. These are less in fat and may help reduce heart diseases.

I think these informations are enough to add soya protein in your daily diet. Todays post is about soya chunks biryani which is a very easy and tasty dish. This biryani goes well with raita, pickle, papad and so on but I made frittata which is another one pot meal. I didn't add many veggies. My frittata was a simple one.

Frittata is an Italian omelet, in which most of the veggies are added and then baked in the oven. As I was alone, I made my frittata with very less ingredients and enjoyed it with yummy biryani.
