Soya Chunk Cutlet

Soya chunks are a great source for proteins.. Recently we had a party at our friend’s home and she had made a dry-roast dish with soya chunks.. it was really yummy.. Infact she had made it for one of our vegetarian friends, but we non-vegs attacked the dish  with all fervor.. 😀 ..  Back home , I wanted to make use of the soya chunks lying in my kitchen as early as I could..  and the outcome was – savory Soyachunk Cutlets..
