Chavlichi Usal

As PJ's event, 'Flavours Of Maharashtra'  is going to get complete on 31st of March. I thought I'll load her inbox with lots of Maharashtrian dishes.  One more usal from my kitchen. Chawli chi usal does not need to bring sprouts to the beans. So when ever you feel short of vegetables in kitchen, you can make it immediately.


Cahvli (black eyed beans) - 1 cup

Chopped onion - 1-2

Tomatoes - 1

Red chilli powder - 1,1/2 teaspoon

Goda Masala/ Garam Masala - 1 teaspoons

Coriander powder - 1/2 teaspoon

Cumin powder - 1/4 teaspoon

Jaggery - 1/4 teaspoon

Oil - 1 teaspoons

Mustard seeds - 1/4 teaspoon

Asafetida - a pinch

Turmeric powder - 1/2 teaspoon

Chopped coriander leaves for garnishing

Salt to taste

Pressure cook chavli (black eyed beans) in 2 cups of water. Take care that chavli should not over cook. Now heat oil in kadai, add mustard seeds. When it starts spluttering add asafetida and turmeric. Then add chopped onion , when it becomes transparent add finely chopped tomatoes. When tomatoes are cooked properly and leaves oil add cooked chavli. Now add all masalas, that is, red chilli powder, goda masala, cumin powder, coriander powder, salt and jaggery. Mix wel and cover it. Let it cook for a minute or two. So that chavli will absorb all the flavors of masala. You can make it dry of little gravy in it as per your wish. Garnish with chopped coriander. Serve with Roti or rice.

This goes to PJ's event, 'Flavours Of Maharashtra' and Naina
