Method: Bring a pot full of water to boil and turn off the stove. Add a tsp of salt and throw the soy chunks in there and let them sit in there for five minutes. Then use a colander to drain the water and set them aside.Dry roast almonds and grind them to a fine powder in a nut grinder.Blend the tomatoes,almond powder, garam masala, salt, turmeric powder,red chilli pepper,  ginger-garlic paste, to a fine paste.
