Parota with Mock Meat Loaf-The BIG BOY weekend breakfastst

Boys will be boys matter what. They love their food , and whats not to love in the food if there is a great mix of Protein , Carbs, Veggies (albeit hidden) and a small (or you can choose to make it big ) amount of fat. but tell me truly - do the boys in your house care too much about the nutrients as much they would harp about the taste . In my house its the taste that always wins the battle of food.

Now that the boy in my house a.k.a hubby has taken to tennis with  a vengeance im a bit more liberal with good ol food the way a man would like. 

With this thought it was the turn of mock meat loaf with Parotas - who says meat loaf can only be had with breads!! these beauties are truly Indian in flavor , with beautiful aromas of five spices married to the robustness of meat err soya meat.

It's easy with only 6 ingredients , what we usually have stacked in our pantries...this elevates our everyday food experience to another level , and a little bit of aporeciation from hubby is always  a bonus :)

So here's the mock meat loaf recipe : 
300 gms Soya granules100 gms packaged sweet corn
2 large onions minced

8-9 cloves garlic chopped
2 eggs
1 cup of plain breadcrumbs
2 tsp Garam Masala /five spice powder
1 tsp chili flakes (to taste)
1 tsp salt (to taste)
3 tbsp oil

Heat oil In a large fry pan, brown onions and garlic. Stir in the corn and fry lightly. Mix together soaked and drained minced soya granules with the salt, chili flakes and garam masala. Stir the entire mix together til water evaporates and spices are well infused in the granules. Let it cool. Now add the eggs -works best if you mix with your hands. Add the breadcrumbs and lightly mix around with hands do not over touch the mixture. Put into a greased loaf pan in the oven for 40 minutes at 170°C o.

This is such a healthy and easy recipe that tastes so good, and very man like! Serve with hot parotas and yogurt on the side. 

This also makes a terrific left over for sandwiches the next day. Tastes great by itself or with some ketchup and chat masala, lemon juice and raw onions and tomato salad.
