Hello everyone! I am so excited to even think about the coming week. On Tuesday, I am going to give my eyelashes a makeover. I am getting eyelash extensions! Yes, there is such a thing! It will be my first time and I am sooo excited and nervous at the same time! And after that, on the weekend we are flying to San Francisco for a week long vacation. All in all, a very exciting few days coming up for me. As for today, I am going to share with you my mother’s recipe for Lobia Masala. Trust me, this is a very simple recipe and is so quick to make, you are going to love it just like me!
Lobia is also called as Black eyed peas. They are very rich in Vitamins B Complex, protein, zinc, calcium and iron. Plus the way I cook it, it tastes delicious! I usually have it with rice. But it can be enjoyed equally well with roti or parantha.
Initially, when I came to the US, I did not count this as a part of my usual cooking plan. I had almost forgotten about it. But one fine day, I remembered how my mom used to make this and how I loved devouring it with loads of jeera rice! So, soon, I got this from the Indian grocery store and decided to call my mother for her recipe. And then, after a few hours, I had some amazingly delicious Lobia Masala on my plate.
Now for preparation, you have to soak the lobia for 4-5 hours or even overnight. That will make the beans soak up the water and become much softer. After that, you would only need to pressure cook them for 5-10 minutes and it will be done!
So for the rest of the recipe, lets jump right to it!
This is a very easy and immensely delicious simple recipe. I hope you try it too. If you do, let me know how it turned out.
This is definitely one of my favorites!
Till next time…
