How to make the recipe
Making soya keema for filling
Heat 3 cups of water in a pot. Add soya granules or chunks and allow to soak very well until soft. Water turns frothy at this stage.
Drain them in a colander and squeeze off excess water. Rinse them in fresh water few times and squeeze off the excess water. If you have used soya chunks, you will have to pulse them in a blender to get the soya keema. Do it only a few times.
Heat oil in a pan and saute jeera until it begins to crackle.
Add onions and saute until they turn pink to golden.
Add ginger garlic paste and fry till the raw smell has gone. This takes about 2 mins.
Add capsicum, peas and soya granules. Saute on a medium heat for 2 to 3 mins.
Add salt, turmeric, chili powder and garam masala. Saute for another 2 mins.
Reduce the flame to low and cook covered for about 5 to 7 mins until the raw smell of soya has completely gone. You will have to keep stirring in between to prevent burning.
Add meat masala and more salt if needed and saute for another 2 mins.
To make sure soya tastes good, cook until it turns soft and no raw flavor can be felt.
Add coriander leaves. Switch off the stove and squeeze in lemon juice or amchur powder.
Mix everything well. Soya kheema masala is ready.

If you have green chutney or prefer to use sauce, you can spread it. First butter the bread on the inner side as well and then the sauce or chutney.
Cover the bread and grill it until golden and crisp.
