Soy granules Fatehpuri kebabs

This is the vegetarian version of Fatehpuri kebab, a lesser known cousin of the famous Galouti kebab.

Fatehpuri is a well known area for food lovers of Delhi. The place lies in the adjacent area of the Fatehpuri mosque, Chandni Chowk, old Delhi.

Originally this kebab is made of minced goat or lamb meat, with a rich taste of poppy seeds and almond paste.

Here, I have replaced the mince meat with soy granules mince. 🙂

Soy is increasingly becoming a dependable source of protein among vegetarians in India. It has been named ‘the vegetarian meat’ 😉
