Soya Kheema Curry

        
               This easy Soya Kheema Curry (masala) is one of the best tasting curries with a balanced nutrition from vegetable as well from soya kheema. I bet there can be none who will not like this particular dish, unless you have a personal dislike towards soya meat or beans. I have nothing to boast about it, do try yourself and iam sure you will agree with me. This time i have used Chinese long beans (bobbarakayalu in telugu, alsandi  kaye in kannada) ; you can use French beans or cluster beans (goru chikudukaya in telugu, chavalikayi in kannada) too. But make sure you use good tender beans with no hard fiber veins (on the sides).  I have used soya chunks to make the kheema, if you do not have, you could blend the granules or can use as it is if you have tiny granules. There is no substitute for any ingredient and to get it right need to use all of them.
Ingredients
1 cup of soya chunks (can increase or decrease)
1 cup of chopped beans (can increase or decrease)
1 sprig curry leaves
Pinch of mustard seeds
Generous pinch of cumin (jeera)
¾ tsp ginger garlic paste or only ginger paste
2 tbsps oil
Pinch of turmeric
Salt to taste
1 tsp. red chili powder
1 tsp. garam masala powder (increase or decrease to suit your taste)
3 to 4 tbsps thick coconut milk
Method
1.   Soak soya chunks in hot water till they soften, squeeze up the excess water, rinse twice in cold water and squeeze off the water. ensure there is no water left, they must be absolutely dry
2.   Blend or pulse these coarsely without water
3.   Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan, add mustard cumin, when they begin to splutter add curry leaves
4.   Add ginger garlic paste, sauté for a min
5.   Add beans, soya kheema, salt and turmeric
6.   fry on a medium high till the raw smell from both disappears, takes around 3 to 4 mins
7.   Add red chili powder, garam masala. Mix well and fry for 2 to 3 mins more.
8.   Pour the coconut milk, cover and cook on a low flame till the beans are fully done. take care not to burn. if needed just sprinkle some water and cook
Serve hot with rice or chapathi or roti
