If you do not have soya keema, here is how to make it from soya chunks. Soak soya chunks in hot water till they soften, discard the water and rinse in cold water, squeeze off the excess water and set aside. Pulse the chunks in a grinder to coarse keema or mince. Set aside.
To use the store bought soya keema bring 3 cups of water to a boil. Add the mince and turn off the stove. Let soak well soft. Then discard the water and squeeze the mince well.
Rinse it again 2 to 3 times in fresh cold water, squeezing off the absorbed water.
