Chavli Farasbean Bhaji (Blackeye peas and french beans curry)

Today I am going to share a very simple and easy curry. It is a combination of chavli or black eye peas and french beans. So it is packed with protein and fiber.

Ingredients: 1 can black eye peas ( or 1 cup soaked overnight and pressure cooked). 1 cup french beans (cut into 1 inch pieces) or frozen ones, tempering - 3-4 tsp oil, 1 tsp mustard seeds, 1/2 tsp asofoetida, 1 tsp cumin seeds, 1 tsp turmeric powder, 1 tsp red chilli powder, 1 tsp coriander powder, 1 tsp garam masala/goda masala, 2 tsp jaggery (optional).

Method: Heat about 3-4 tsp oil in a pan. When it is hot, add mustard seeds. When they crackle, add 1/2 tsp of asofoetida, 1 tsp cumin seeds, 1 tsp turmeric powder, 1 tsp red chilli powder. Add the french beans and black eye peas. Saute for 3-4 mins. Add 2 tsp goda masala/garam masala and abt 2 tsp jaggery (optional) and salt to taste. Cook for 15-20 mins till everything is cooked. Garnish with cilantro and serve with rotis.
