Drop the Soy Chunks in hot water.I usually add it along with the cooking liquid to the rice. But since my husband does not prefer this in big pieces - I do it separately and chop it down to smaller pieces. Its optional - you can straightaway add it to the rice during cooking time or soak it separately and add it towards the end.
While that's soaking, heat a large pan and add 1-2 tsp. of oil to it. I used 2 tsp. ghee. When hot, add the cumin seeds and onion to it.
After a minut or 2 when the onions are soft, add the sliced green garlic,
along with Basmati Rice. (You can clean and pre soak the rice for 10- minutes for separate strands of rice - optional). Stir for a minute or 2, until it turns slightly reddish brown. You will at this point also get aroma from the basmati and green garlic.
Add 2 cups of water along with salt.
Close the lid and let the rice cook undisturbed for about 10 minutes.
While the rice is cooking, remove the soy chunks from water. They will be now soft and enlarged.
I slice it down into thin slices.
When the rice is 90% cooked (you will find the most of the water has been absorbed), add the frozen peas and the sliced soy chunks to the rice.
Give it a gentle stir to incorporate the ingredients.
Close the lid and let it sit for few more minutes. Slowly fluff the rice.
