This actually, originally was made by my mum as a sandwich spread ! That too of the leftover soya granules. She transformed the cooked ‘nutri sabji’ into an amazing sandwich dip and surprised all of us one fine morning for breakfast. This dip is an inspiration from that spread !!
Though of course this recipe is tweaked as per my taste and sensibility and is not made from leftovers.
The granules lend a very interesting texture to the dip. It is again healthy and not so bad for your waistline.
It of course can be used as a spread in sandwiches but otherwise goes well with crackers, pita, salted toasties etc.

2. Now add the soya granules and season with salt. Mix well and saute for another 3-4 minutes. Remove from the flame and let it cool down.
3. Take another pan, melt the butter, add the flour and saute` till an aroma rises. Keep stirring and make sure that the roux doesn’t change colour.
4. Turn the flame down and add the milk in two batches, whisking well continuously. Make sure there are no lumps.
5. Once you get a smooth sauce consistency and the sauce coats the back of the spoon, add the salt and pepper and mix well.
6. Now add the cooked soya granules and mix well so that it blends well with the sauce.
7. Transfer in a serving dish and serve warm with toasties or crackers.
Happy Dipping !!
