Vegetarian Chilli Seitan (Vegan meat)

This recipe is made with wheat protein called Seitan (popular as vegan meat), Seitan is used as imitation meat in vegan restaurants. Seitan is made with Vital Wheat Gluten (Wheat Protein). Here I am making chilli chicken style vegan version by using Seitan as substitute, so it might look like meat but no worries.
