Aloo Lobia

Ingredients:
2 medium sized Potatoes
1 - 1.5 soaked Black Eyed Beans / Alasande Beeja / Lobia
1.5 medium sized Tomatoes
1 medium sized Onion
1-2 Green Chillies
1.5 - 2 tsp Sambar powder
1/2 tsp Coriander powder
1/4 tsp Cumin seed powder
1/2 tsp Ginger Garlic paste
Pinch of Turmeric powder
Grape sized Jaggery
4-5 Curry leaves
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
1/4 tsp Mustard seeds
A big pinch of Asafoetida powder
4-5 Coriander leaves
Salt to taste
2 tsp Oil

Recipe:
Soak black eyed beans in water for about 8-10 hrs.
Peel the potatoes and chop them into medium sized pieces as shown in the picture below. Chop onion, tomato and green chillies into small pieces as shown in the picture below.

Put oil in a pressure cooker and heat. Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds and fry. Once it starts spluttering, add asafetida powder, curry leaves, green chillies, ginger garlic paste and fry them for about 1 min in medium flame. Add chopped onion, turmeric powder and fry them for about 3-4 mins in medium flame, until onion turns golden in color. Add chopped tomato and fry them for about 3-4 mins in medium flame, until oil is separated. Add chopped potatoes, soaked black eyed beans, sambar powder, cumin seed powder, coriander powder, jaggary and mix well.

Add salt and required amount of water(2-3 cups) and cook them well. (2-3 whistles)

Once the pressure goes off, add chopped coriander leaves and serve hot. It goes well with chapathi/poori. I have tried this recipe from Monsoon Spice. Thanks Sia.
