A very easy dhal, made with the nutritious Karamani/Lobia/Black eyed  peas....which is a fat burner...helps you lose the unwanted weight, a rich source of protein especially for vegetarians, prevents anemia, since rich in Iron, has great fiber content, also  has Potassium which can keep our blood pressure at good levels.
Please check my other Dhal varieties and other Side dishes for rotis & poories

Coriander leaves/cilantro for garnishing

Recipe Cuisine: North Indian; Category: Sides/lunch/dinner

Serves 2-3 

You can see the Lobia getting soaked for 3 hours

In a pressure pan or cooker, heat oil, and season jeera

Then add the onions and tomatoes along with garlic-ginger paste

After the onions turn translucent, add the chilli, coriander and Jeera powders

Mix well

Now, add the soaked black eyed chick peas, add salt to taste

Add about 1 cup water, and pressure cook for 5 whistles. If you over cook, black eyd chick peas will become mushy, that will not look good. It cooks very easily

This is how it looks after the pressure releases

Garnish Cilantro leaves, serve hot with Aloo-paneer rotis
