Coriander Leaves - handful - Chopped


Soak Black Eyed Beans in water overnight. Pressure Cook (three whistles).

Heat oil in a Kadai and add the Mustard seeds. When it sputters, add the Cumin Seeds and Dhania Powder. Add the the Onions and fry until tender. Now add the Cooked Beans and Stir. Add 1/2 cup water and let it boil. Now, add the Turmeric Powder, Asafoetida Powder, Red chilli Powder and Salt. Cook for a couple of Minutes and turn off heat. Garnish with Coriander Leaves. Serve hot for Rotis/Chapathis.
