Simple meal with black eye bean curry and king fish fry. This is my own recipe and it came out pretty well..They pair well with both rice and chapathis..Here goes my version of the black eyed beans curry..
Black eyed beans – 1 cup
Onion (large sized) – 1 finely chopped
Tomato – 2 finely chopped
Garam masala – 1 teaspoon
Coriander powder – 2 teaspoons
Cumin powder – 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Oil – 2 spoons
Salt to taste
Pressure cook the beans with enough water until three whistles.Drain the water and keep aside.Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds.Once they start sputtering add the chopped onions..Once they turn translucent add the chopped tomatoes and allow it to cook for 2 minutes.Add the ginger garlic paste and again cook for a minute..Add the Coriander powder,cumin powder and garam masala and the cooked beans..Add enough salt to taste and one cup of water..Bring it to a boil and then simmer it for about 7 to 8 minutes until all the flavors blend together..Garnish with cilantro..Serve hot with rice or chapathis.
For Fish Recipe
Wash fish with water and some lemon juice or vinegar
Pat fish dry with a tea towel or paper towel. It is important that it is dry so that there is no water when frying. Excess water will cause the hot oil to pop or splatter
Season fish liberally with salt and black pepper and refrigerator for about 1 hour
In a deep frying pan heat a liberal amount of cooking oil on High. When frying the fish should be half immersed in the oil.
Fry fish for 4 to 5 minutes on each side; drain on paper towel.
Serve with a White Rice.
