How to Make Black Eyed Beans Curry

  • Wash and soak beans for one hour or more.
  • In a small bowl, mix the ginger, green chilli, coriander powder, turmeric powder and 3 tbsps of water to make a paste.
  • Heat the oil in pressure cooker on medium heat.
  • Test the heat by adding one cumin seed to the oil.
  • If seed cracks right away, oil is ready.
  • Add the cumin seeds, and as they crack add asafoetida and spice paste.
  • Stir for a minute. Add black eyed beans, salt and water.
  • Close the pressure cooker. As it starts steaming, turn the heat down to medium and cook for 6-7 minutes.
  • Turn off the heat and wait until steam has stopped before opening the pressure cooker.
  • Black-eyed beans should be soft and tender.
  • Add mango powder, garam masala and tomatoes. Cover the cooker for few minutes.
  • That will give tomatoes the chance to get semi cooked with steam.
  • Black eyed beans are ready to serve. Garnish with wedges of lemon.
