Soya Aloo Matar

Sometimes when I am not making a non vegetarian dish I love to add soya chunks or granules in my meals. They make the dish tasty and are also very healthy. Plus they give you a feel of eating a special meal . This Soya alu matar is very simple to make but a delicious dish . I made it with rotis yesterday for our dinner.
