Lets check how soy chunks are cooked, first of all you need to soak soy chunks for sometime to let the impurities melt down and settle on the bottom. Then cook them in boiling water for about 5-6 minutes(depending on the size) and let them sit for 10 minutes before straining. Rinse them again and squeeze to remove the excess water from it.Now your soy chunks are ready to be used.
