This protein-rich combination of chana and soya is sure to steal the show, as the texture and flavours will be loved by everybody young and old. Flavoured amply with masala pastes and powders, and kasuri methi for a final highlight, the chana soya masala is a delightful subzi that is very easy to prepare. Just remember to soak the soya nuggets in warm water for at least 20 minutes before using them.
