1 cup = 200 ml. | 1 tbsp. = 15 ml.



1. This preparation is like a vegetarian version of Mutton Keema.  Hence it should be a little spicy, tangy, and gives you an instant kick to the palate.  However, you can reduce the spice level to suit your palate.

2. The texture will look meaty and tastes similar to Mumbai’s favorite pav-bhaji.

3. Consistency – semi-dry. It shouldn’t be completely dry. Add in more butter to make it utterly butterly delicious!



  • 1 cup soya granules
  • 5–6 cups water
  • 2 packets finely chopped fresh mushrooms
  • 3–4 tbsp. oil
  • 3 med sized finely chopped onions
  • 5 med sized finely chopped tomatoes

Step 4

Now add in the chopped mushrooms and cook on a high flame.

Step 5

Once mushrooms are cooked and oil floats up add in the VegPro soya granules and the remaining 1-1⁄2 cups of water. Season it with salt.
