What are the health benefits of Soybean?

Soybeans are a versatile legume with many health benefits. Here are some of the key benefits of eating soybeans:

  1. Rich in Protein: Soybeans are one of the best plant-based protein sources, making them a great option for vegetarians and vegans.
  2. Bone Health: Soybeans are a good source of calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus, which are essential minerals for maintaining strong and healthy bones.

                                                                                                                              1. Prep Ahead: Soak Soya Granules (granulated soya) in water for around 20 minutes or until soft and plump. Drain the water and squeeze out any excess moisture from the soybean granules. Crush garlic and ginger in a mortar and pestle. 
                                                                                                                              2. Heat oil in a pan or kadhai over medium heat. Add cumin seeds and let them splutter.
                                                                                                                              3. Add chopped onion and crushed ginger-garlic to the pan and sauté until golden brown.
                                                                                                                              4. Add chopped tomatoes to the pan, salt, red chili powder, coriander powder, and turmeric powder. Cook until they turn soft and mushy.
                                                                                                                              5. Once the tomatoes are cooked, add the soaked and drained soybean granules to the pan. Mix well to combine with the onion-tomato mixture.
                                                                                                                              6. Add green peas, chili, milk, garam masala, and Kasoori methi. Mix well and cook on low flame until slightly creamy and all flavors meld together, for about 5-7 minutes. 
                                                                                                                              7. Once done, remove from the flame. Garnish the soybean granules sabzi with fresh coriander leaves and chopped green chili. Serve hot with roti, paratha, or rice.
