Chodi Nu Shaak / Black Eyed Beans Curry

Chodi Nu Shaak {in Gujarati} called as Black Eyed Beans {in English} or Lobia {in Hindi} is a simple, delicious and a nutritious curry. It tastes extremely good, and is a perfect accompaniment with roti / chapati.

Ingredients:
Chodi / Black Eyed Beans 1 cup
Onion 1, small
Tomatoes 2, medium
Ginger - Garlic paste 1 tsp
Oil 2 tbsp
Cumin seeds 1 tsp
Garam Masala 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder 1 tsp
Red Chili Powder 1 tsp
Salt as per taste
Freshly Chopped Coriander leaves 

Method:
Pre-preparation:
Wash and Soak chodi / black eyed beans in water for 7 - 8 hours / overnight is better.
Drain the water.
Pressure cook them with salt and water{around 2 cups of  fresh water} for 4 - 5 whistles {until soft}.
Once pressure releases, open the cooker, drain and keep aside ready.
Chop onion finely and keep ready.

Chop tomatoes roughly and grind it to a smooth paste / puree.

Lets cook the curry....
In a pan, heat oil. Once heated, add cumin seeds. As it splutters, add onion and saute for a minute. 

Now add ginger- garlic paste and saute until onions turn soft and golden. 

Now add tomato paste / puree and cook for a minute. 
Add in turmeric powder, red chili powder and salt and cook until the raw smell goes and  oil starts to leave in the sides.

Now add the boiled chodi / black eyed beans and mix well.

Add in some water{say around 1/4th cup but not much} and allow it to cook until the masalas are absorbed by the chodi / black eyed beans. 

Now add garam masala, mix and check for salt. 
Cook for a minute or two and switch off the flame.

Garnish with coriander leaves.

Serve with Roti / Chapati....
