  60. I am trying soya for last 1 week continously. I tried different recipes... soya curry, soya fried, soya chicken recipe, soya theeyal, soya thoran... and a lot more... however, I never thought of such a nice dish.

    Soya is very rich in proteins and with 0% fat.

    I assume it will take some time for me to prepare so I will give it a try on Monday. I was in the blogsphere today for some time and read a lot of blogs, recipes, thoughts etc.

    I am very happy that peope still maintain their blog and wite well as always. I was also happy that I was able to concentrate on blogging and share my thoughts.

    Have a nice day Sushma.

    Regards,
    Abhilash
