Microwave Soya Crisps

These soya crisps are totally awesome and addictive but quite guilt free.When these replace a bag of potato chips all I can say is that are as flavorful as the chips yet you won't mind munching another handful.Try them and you will fall in love with these golden nibbles.

I used:

Soya beans- 1 cup
Oil- 1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder-1/8th teaspoon
Salt and chilli powder to taste

  1. Soak soya beans overnight or for 8 hours
  2. Drain the water and add the oil and turmeric power.Mix well and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  3. Spread a handful of soya on a microwave proof plate and microwave on high for 3 minutes.
  4. Transfer to another plate and keep aside
  5. Repeat till the whole batch is done.
  6. After a few minutes the soya will turn crisp.
  7. Transfer them in to an airtight container ,sprinkle salt and chilli powder,toss well and store.


In case the soya does not turn crisp after a few minutes,microwave them again for a couple of minutes and leave them out for a while.The cooking timing will vary on the quantity of soya used per batch.

  8. Dear Padmaja
    How are you?
    I never thought soya can be made this way ..will try soon..I normally treat ground nut this way..may be the very high oil content make them crispy.
    have a nice weekend.

  9. Now I know what to do with the soy beans I got it from the chinese store thinking it was dried peas.

    Easy to make and looks yummy. Thanks.
