Black Eye Beans Gravy / Curry.
My daughter loves black eyes beans like anything. So I include it in my cooking atleast twice a week. This recipe is a very simple and easy one.
1. Black eyed beans - 150 - 200 gms
2. Onions - 2 nos (Medium)
3. Tomatoes - 2 nos (Medium)
4. Salt - As reqd
5. Garam masala - 3/4 Tblspoons
6. Hing - A pinch
7. Jeera seeds - 1/2 Tspoon
8. Oil - 1 to 2 Tblspoons
9. Ginger Garlic paste - 1/2 tblspoon
Wash the black eye beans for any dirt and soak it in water either overnight or for 8 hrs. Now pressure cook or boil the beans till it cooks almost soft. Now, heat a kadai. Add oil and Jeera seeds. Once it splutters, add the chopped onions saute till its translucent. Add the chopped tomatoes and fry till raw smell disappears. Now add the boiled beans and give a gentle mix. Then add some water, salt, ginger garlic paste and garam masala and allow the mixture to boil. Once the raw smell of garam masala goes off, remove the mixture from stove. Black eyes bean curry is ready to be served. Coriander leaves can be used for garnishing.
This is a good accompaniment for Steamed rice, Chapathi, Poori etc.
