FAQ’s

#1. Do soya chunks need to be soaked before cooking?

Yes, soya chunks typically need to be soaked before cooking. Soaking also helps to soften their texture. Generally, it’s recommended to soak soya chunks in hot water for about 5-8 minutes, or until they become soft and plump. After soaking, drain the water and squeeze out any excess moisture before adding the soya chunks to your recipe.

#2. Is it necessary to boil soya chunks before cooking?

Boiling soya chunks before cooking are not necessary. Instead, you can soak soya chunks in hot water for 10-20 minutes before cooking. If you are using a pressure cooker to make a recipe with soya chunks, you can soak them in hot water for 5-8 minutes, as the pressure cooking process itself can help to cook and tenderize the soya chunks.
