Methi n Soya chunks kaju masala

This is one of the healthy and rich North Indian dish with fresh fenugreek leaves and protein packed soya chunks in a creamy cashew gravy.The original dish called only for kasuri methi (dried fenugreek leaves) but I had fresh ones in stock so I added that plus kasuri methi.I also added  an additional tomato sauce for tangy taste.The dish tasted very yummy and I prepared Methi thepla as a combination.I was tempted to prepare this dish when my fb Friend  Archana had posted this dish in a food group and she shared this recipe of  Preethi Mukesh Rao to me.Preethi is one more awesome cook who comes out with tasty dishes and I have tried few dishes of Preethi.
