Lobia ~ black eyed beans vadas

Sharing a very simple and yummy recipe.  This dish is full of protein and fiber. Made using whole black eyed beans. I bet yes I do :D, once you eat this you are going to be completely bowled over by this dish. I made it just 2 days back for my friends, and they liked it very much!

You will need:

1. 1/2 cup black eyed beans(soak for 4-5 hours)

2.  Drain the soaked beans and keep aside in the strainer for 15 minutes so that all the water is drained.
Once all the water is drained, blend it with some salt, do not make it to a smooth paste. don't add any extra water.
I use a handheld mincer to do this, the texture is just right.

3. Finely chop 1 medium sized onion, 2 g.chilies, a few curry leaves, some fresh coriander leaves and a tiny bit of ginger. add all the chopped veggies to the above blended beans and mix well. adjust the salt if needed.

4. Heat oil in a deep frying pan, once medium hot it is ready. Take about a lime sized bean paste in your hand and squeeze it gently to form a ball, flatten this slightly and add to the oil. Frying turning sides, till it is brown, careful not to make them too brown.

Serve hot, i serve it with Indian tea. You can eat it plain too, no ketchup or sauce is needed.

Hope you try and enjoy this simple dish.

Thank you for stopping by, have a great day!

  1. Looks yummy! So you don't cook the beans, just soak them?
