Soy Chunks Pulav with Boondi Raita

I just love one-pot meals, either is noodles, rice, and lentils,  pulav , biryani. This is a very easy pulav dish, just put everything in one pot and cook it. You can put everything in the pressure cooker and cook it for one whistle too. Here I took soy chunks, which are big in shape so It gives meaty texture and chewiness. It's up to you if you want to add potatoes or not, I like potatoes with chunks either in gravy dish or in pulav.  The whole dish will come together in 20 minutes. I serve it along with simple boondi raita, you can have it onion and tomato raita, cucumber raita.

You can find my other soy chunks recipes  Soya Kheema Masala Green Chickpeas, and Soya Curry, Vindaloo Pulav with Soya and Potatoes,  Soya Malai Kofta Curry Methi Aloo with Soya Granules

Ingredients : 

1 cup Basmati rice
1/2 cup dried soya chunks
1 onion chopped
2-3 dry red chilies
10 Black peppercorns
Few cloves
1 tsp whole cumin (jeera)
1 Potato cut in big chunks
1 tbsp Turmeric powder
1 tbsp Cumin coriander powder
1 tbsp Biryani masala
salt as per taste
1 tbsp Red chili powder
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 green chili cut in big rounds
2 tbsp oil
Boiled egg cut in half


Take one big microwave bowl and add soya chunks with water in it, fill it till all chunks are soaked.
Put it in the microwave on high for a minute, drain the water and squeeze the water out and keep it aside.

Heat up a deep pan with oil in it.

Add whole spices first then jeera.

when jeera changes the color, add onion and cook till its brown.

Add powder masala along with ginger, garlic, and chilies in it.

Saute till raw smells go from ginger-garlic.

Add potatoes, chunks, and rice and mix it.

Add enough water and salt.

After one boil, put it on medium flame and cook it till all water is gone and rice is cooked perfectly.

Don't poke too much while it's cooking. You don't want to break the rice.

When it is done, sprinkle some coriander leaves before serving.

Serve with boondi raita, mix up the yogurt, at the time of the serving, add salt and mix it, put some boondi in it, sprinkle roasted jeera powder, coriander leaves.

If you want you can top it with a boiled egg.
