Vegetarian Soya Kheema n Moong Sprouts non fried vada

A BIG THANK YOU to fellow blogger’s who have been sending me wonderful awards just give me couple of days(due to my travel) to accept them!! Thanks for all your love!!
Now to the dish!!
Soya chunks are substituted for meat it gives the complete protein pack required for non meat eaters. When i was just looking through my refrigerator these cauliflower caught my eyes they were lying for quiet some time but had very few of them. So just decided to go ahead with some main ingredient and landed on these soy kheemas they tasted yummy n spicy. Also wanted to go for some hot vada and was left with these moong sprouts so rounded with these tasty non fried vadas. Before i could click them they were gone.
