When all the veggies have cooked properly then add the boiled soya chunks and mix nicely.At this stage you can taste it and adjust the salt and spices as after mixing rice it is little difficult to adjust the spices.

Tastes best with kitchen king masala, if not available you can also use garam masala. Add according to the spice level you want.
