Soy Granules Curry with Chopped Onions

Some of our fellow blogger friends are hosting some events which are helping me in experimenting new recipes and tasting healthy dishes. I have made a curry with soy granules and chopped onions. It tasted very nice. My husband told me that it tasted almost like kima curry (minced meat of lamb). I want to share this recipe with you...
