An Overview of Making This Easy and Healthy Salad

Cooked black-eyed beans are a good source of dietary fiber and protein. They are delicious too.

For making this salad, the first step is to make the tempering of mustard seeds, hing/asafetida, and curry leaves. In the next step, you have to sauté chopped onion, ginger, and chopped green chilies. In the third, you have to combine cooked black-eyed beans with the sautéed onion, green chilies, grated coconut, a bit of jaggery or sugar, chopped coriander leaves, lemon juice, and salt. You have to mix them well.

Your black-eyed bean salad is ready! Serve 2-3 tablespoons of this hot salad in a small bowl.

Step-By-Step Instructions and Images for Making Black-Eyed Bean Salad:

  1. Soak the beans in water for one hour. Add some salt and just enough water to immerse the beans completely. Cook it in a pressure cooker up to 1 whistle and simmer for 10 minutes. Turn off the fire. Take out the container when the pressure releases completely. Keep aside.
  2. Alternatively, you can cook them in a pot, adding sufficient water. But, this takes more time than cooking in the pressure cooker.
  3. Heat oil in a pan or wok. Throw mustard seeds into it. Let them crackle. Add split black lentil, hing powder, and curry leaves. Saute till black lentils turn honey color.
  4. Throw chopped onion and grated ginger into the pan. Saute them till onion turns transparent and is still crunchy.
  5. Add cooked beans. Add turmeric powder, jaggery powder or sugar, and salt. Mix well. Keep the fire low. Cook for one minute or till the water evaporates from the lentil mix. Turn off the fire.
  6. Add grated coconut and chopped coriander leaves. Mix well.
  7. Black-eyed bean salad is ready to serve. Eat 2-3 table spoon salad in a small bowl. Happy eating!

A Thing to Remember :

You have already added salt while cooking the beans. Hence, add less salt to the salad in the first instance. Check for salt. You can add more salt if needed.
