Homemade Soymilk with baked Soynuts

Happy Women's Day....
Wishing you strength and Happiness 

Enjoy today with a mug of healthy Soymilk and crunchy Soy nuts …


 For Soymilk

1/2 cup dried soybeans
3-4 cups water
Sugar to taste or optional 

For Soynuts

1 cup dried soybeans
1 tsp mixed spices (chilli powder, chaat masala, dried herbs)
1 tsp olive oil
Salt to taste


For Soymilk

  • Soak the beans for 8-12 hours. Once soaked, drain the water. 
    {To reduce the beanie taste  remove the outer shells. Pour the soaked beans into a large bowl and cover with water. Rub off beans between your palm.  This will loosen the shells so continue to do so until they separate. Now give a gentle stir with your hands. The shells will float to the top of the water, scoop then out and rinse the soybeans. }

  • Blend beans with water for a few minutes until you get a smooth mixture.
  • Strain the mixture using a muslin cloth. You might have to do small batches at a time.
  • Over the medium heat, bring the milk to a boil.
  • As the soymilk just starts to boil, open lid and turn to low heat. Add sugar 
  • Stir with a spoon occasionally to prevent browning at the bottom. Keep boiling for another 10-15 minutes.
  • Serve hot or chill or make milk shake, store in a refrigerator and consume it within 3-4 days.

For Soynuts

  • Soak the beans overnight and drain well. Slightly pat dry with kitchen towel.
  • Mix in spices, salt and oil. Add more spices according to your taste.
  • Spread beans on baking tray into single layer, bake at 180 oC. for 25- 30 min.
  • First stir after 15 minutes, then stirring every 5 minutes until golden brown and crunchy. Watch carefully when the beans are getting close to done.
  • Let them cool completely and then keep in airtight container.
