Soya Chunks in a Tomato Gravy

This is tomato gojju but with a little twist. I added seasoned soya chunks to this recipe to increase the protein content in the dish and also because both my husband and I love soya chunks. What I love about soya chunks is that it soaks in all the delicious gravy around it and so once made right is bursting with flavor. Bon Appetite :)
