Soya Chunks Coconut Pulao | How to make Easy Pulao with Soya Chunks, Coconut Milk

Soya Chunks Coconut Pulao with Masala Eggs is a wonderful combination you can make for a lazy weekend meal. The Milk Pulao is not mild in spicy and hence the spicy Masala Eggs makes a good combination to be served along with it.

For the second day under BM# 49, Cooking for one / Bachelor Cooking, I made this simple spiced Soya chunks, cooked in coconut milk pulao. I was cooking just for my husband, while I made vegetarian for the rest of us. So I decided to make it more filling and paired it with Masala Eggs.I have started including Soya chunks more in my cooking for protein supplement and it really works out best as they all like it. In fact, at times I tell my boys that it’s chicken and they are happily eating it. At times they know about it and still pretend that they got convinced about it.

Anyway, both this pulao and the egg made a great combo, or at least that’s what Hubby dear told me. The pulao is not very spicy, with mild spices and rich in coconut milk and the egg masala makes sure to take care of the spicy kick!
