Soya Chunks Masala

Normally I buy Soya Chunks to add them in vegetable briyani but totally forget about the chunks when I make the briyani. After a enjoyable weekend at the mighty Niagara we did not have any vegetable, suitable to make curry for our dinner. Got reminded of the chunks and prepared this spicy Soya Chunks Masala and served it with Naan. Try and Enjoy !!
