Speaking at the launch, Chef Pankaj Bhadouria said, “It was exciting to create these vegetarian kebab dishes that are rich in nutrition providing the protein that the body requires in a tasty and delicious form. We have stayed true to the spirit of Awadhi cuisine and I have strived to capture the essence of these in the Nutrela vegetarian kebabs. These Nutrela Soya 100% vegetarian kebab creations are tasty, nutritious and packed with the goodness of natural soya protein. I am sure that this will emerge as a popular ingredient alternative to liven up every meal and become a favorite of every household.”
The Nutrela Kebab Festival will explore cuisines from different parts of the country through vegetarian recipes that enrich regional delicacies with the high in protein Nutrela Soya!
Soya protein is the only plant-based protein that provides all the essential amino acids in the amounts needed for human health. Substituting animal protein with soya protein replaces saturated fats and cholesterol with a much healthier vegetarian protein that benefits the heart by being high in good polyunsaturated fats, low in bad saturated fats and is naturally cholesterol free. Nutrela Soya with 52% protein has more protein than milk, dal or eggs, and is also 99% fat-free! It is also rich in calcium and iron. In light of the issues with supply and availability of meat as a source of protein in many states, Nutrela Soya offers a high-quality protein source that can be cooked creatively to fulfill the daily protein requirement in a healthy and tasty manner.
Mr. Satendra Aggarwal, COO, Ruchi Soya said, “Nutrela is one of the most trusted 100% vegetarian soya food brand in the country. Full of nutrition and easy to prepare, Nutrela Soya protein is available in granules, chunks, and mini-chunks. A simple 3 step procedure is all that is required to prepare a range of delicious dishes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, evening snacks and even desserts! The Nutrela Kebab Festival will introduce our consumers to simple yet innovative and tasty nutritious vegetarian dishes rich in protein that the family will love!”
