Chawli Masala / Lobia Curry / Black Eye Bean Curry

Chawli Masala / Lobia Curry / Black Eye Bean Curry is a simple and quick curry made in a pressure cooker by cooking soaked black eye bean along with onion, tomato, ginger garlic paste and regular Indian spices. Addition of sambhar masala gives a different flavor and aroma to the dish. The curry is vegan, protein rich and can be enjoyed with roti, bhakri or rice or add some chopped tomato, onion, green chutney , sev to it and serve as a healthy breakfast or chat.

We had this curry with kathiyawadi whole wheat biscuit bhakhari. I had learnt this simple tip from my mother (Rekha Ramolia). She would give a different taste to the regular subji or curry by adding different spices such as sambhar masala, chole masala, pavbhaji masala etc. She always adds sambhar masala when she makes chawli masala or whole masoor dal. She gives a twist to her regular cauliflower subji by adding pavbhaji masala to it. So such simple things gives a different taste to the dish.

My son enjoyed a the chawli masala and bhakri in the form of pizza.

I made tava pizza for him on the bhakri with the topping of chawli masala and cheese.

So friends do try out this simple and quickly made chawli masala and please do share your valuable feedback with me..

Khao dilse, khilao dilse aur banao dilse…
