Vegan Seitan Cilantro Masala is a delectable and flavorful entree with a medley of Indian spices and vegan protein. It’s a great substitute for coriander chicken as well. My recent found of seitan has sufficiently provided me with my protein requirement. Seitan is a wheat protein and it’s super versatile. It serves as a great substitute to chicken in any recipe. I have been thinking to come up with some protein rich vegan Indian recipe. Fortunately, I had a bunch of fresh cilantro sitting in my refrigerator. Initially, I planned to make some chutney out of it. At that moment, it struck me, to make a recipe similar to coriander chicken with seitan in it. That way I eat enough protein, and satisfy my desire for an Indian masala entree.
