Chili soyabean is one of my favourite vegetarian recipes. It is a brilliant substitute for Chilli Chicken. This Indian Chinese fusion recipe is made of soyabean chunks or nuggets. It is cooked with few masalas and different sauces. The interesting fact is that soyabean has more protein than chicken. Chili Soyabean can be served with fried rice or simply with Indian Parathas.
