Seitan is such a delight!! It is as versatile as chicken as it absorbs flavours soo easily and then tastes so different each time you make it. For the basic SEITAN recipe please go to the Step by Step folder . I made this particular seitan with whole wheat flour. It turned out equally as good as the one made with white flour. So once you have your seitan made lets start with the marinade.
1 cup of sour yoghurt
1 tablespoon of ginger garlic paste
2 teaspoons of NITU DIDI TANDOORI SPICE POWDER
2 tablespoons of a good red tomato paste(this is from where you get the color…i dont use food coloring)
juice of 1 lime
chilli flakes as needed
chopped onions, green chillies and coriander leaves for the garnish and chaat masala for sprinking
a few tablespoons of cooking oil for the sautee
marinate your seitan in the above ingredients except the onions, green chillies and coriander leaves for a few hours. A few hours is more than enough.
Heat the oil in a non stick wok or frying pan (you can even omit the oil). Put the marinated seitan and sautee it for a few minutes on high heat till softened and done.
Put into a plate, garnish with chopped onions, green chillies and coriander leaves and sprinkle with chaat masala (if you have it)
