Soya Keema fritters/ Vegan meat balls

Textured vegetarian meat ball is an excellent and easy nutritious starter or a snack. A great and easy way to incorporate protein and calcium with this scrumptious vegan meat ball.

Soy nuggets/ granules made from soy bean are odorless and tasteless soy chunks that absorb any flavor added in the dish. It is also called as TSP (Textured Soy Protein)  are a versatile protein rich healthy vegetarian  meat substitute that everyone can enjoy. 


Extremely rich in protein with a good amount of fiber, vitamins and minerals for growing children. I like to double wash my soy chunks or granules to eliminate the mild raw soy odor. By doing so it easily absorbs the flavor and aroma of the masala added. Mark my word, this vegan meat balls will be everyone's favorite that includes non-vegetarians as well.
