Vegetarian chili is undoubtedly one of my favorite one-pot meals. Chili is basically an American dish with Mexican roots, traditionally made with meat. A spicy, rich and hearty stew. Over the years vegetarians adapted the recipe to make meatless versions, and vegans went a step further to remove the dairy components as well.
1. Heat oil in a pressure cooker and add the onion, garlic, chili and ginger. Cook on low-medium heat until the onion turns translucent.
2. Add the mixed vegetables and continue cooking till they soften a bit. Now add the tomato. Let the mixture cook till the tomato turns pulpy.
3. Stir in the boiled chickpeas/kidney beans and soya granules. Add the water. Season with turmeric powder, cumin powder and salt. Pressure cook on medium for 7-8 minutes.
4. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning and serve hot with vegan sour cream.
