Ingredients

Lobhiya (Black Eyed Peas) 2 cups
Chopped red onion 1 small (1/2 cup)
Tomato puree 1 cup
Green chillies chopped (optional) 2
Coriander leaves chopped 1/4 cup
Ginger garlic paste 1 tbsp
Oil 1 tbsp
Cumin powder 1 tsp
Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
Red chili powder 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder 1 tsp
Garam masala 1/2 tsp
Mango powder 1 tsp
Salt 1 1/2 tsp
Cloves (optional) 2
Big Cardamom (optional) 1
Kasoori Methi (Dried fenugreek leaves) – optional 1 tsp

Method

  1. Pick lobhiya to make sure there are no stones or dirt. Wash thoroughly.
  2. Cook in pressure cooker with turmeric powder and salt.
  3. Once the cooker starts whistling, reduce heat and let it cook for 10 minutes. Turn off the heat.
  4. Heat oil in a pan. Add onion and ginger-garlic paste. Saute till onions become translucent.
  5. Add cumin powder, chili powder, coriander powder, mango powder, cloves, cardamom and mix.
  6. Add tomato puree and green chilies. Saute till oil starts showing. Turn off the heat.
  7. Heat fenugreek leaves in microwave for 2 minutes. Crush it to a fine powder. Keep aside.
  8. Open the pressure cooker after the steam dies completely.
  9. Mix boiled lobhiya into the tomato mixture and cook for 5 minutes on low heat. Add garam masala and fenugreek powder. Turn off the heat.
  10. Serve hot with Rice, Flat bread and Mashed Eggplant.

Notes:

  1. You may have to fine tune the duration of pressure cooking because it depends on your pressure cooker. Basically the lobhiya should be pretty soft after they are cooked.
  2. You can skip garlic if you don’t like it.
