Black Eyed beans curry

I had no vegetables in hand and was tired making the same dhall and sambhar..Had these pretty black eyed beans and decided to make a curry using it..This is my own recipe and it came out pretty well..They pair well with both rice and chapathis..Here goes my version of the black eyed beans curry..



Black eyed beans - 1 cup
Onion (large sized) - 1 finely chopped
Tomato - 2 finely chopped
Garam masala - 1 teaspoon
Coriander powder - 2 teaspoons
Cumin powder - 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Oil - 2 spoons
Salt to taste


Pressure cook the beans with enough water until three whistles.Drain the water and keep aside.Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds.Once they start sputtering add the chopped onions..Once they turn translucent add the chopped tomatoes and allow it to cook for 2 minutes.Add the ginger garlic paste and again cook for a minute..Add the Coriander powder,cumin powder and garam masala and the cooked beans..Add enough salt to taste and one cup of water..Bring it to a boil and then simmer it for about 7 to 8 minutes until all the flavors blend together..Garnish with cilantro..Serve hot with rice or chapathis.
