Black eyed bean rice / chawli bhaat - simple complete meal for one

black eyed bean rice One pot meals is the so called comfort food for me. This one is so filling as well as nutritious. I make this quite often using different pulses like kabuli channa(chick peas-white or black),moong or butter beans. Its very easy to make and you can have it with plain curd or some raitha or just papad /chips.

Ingredients-
Black eyed beans- 1 cup
Onions- 1 finely chopped
Ginger garlic paste- 1tsp
Green chillies- 1 finely chopped
Tomatoes- 1 chopped
Turmeric powder- 1tsp
Red chilly powder- 1tsp
Coriander powder- 1tsp
Garam masala- 1tsp
Salt- to taste
Oil- 2tsp
Mustard seeds- 1tsp
cumin seeds- 1tsp
Rice- 1 cup

Method
Wash the rice. Drain the water and keep aside. Soak the beans for 1 hour.
Heat oil in a pressure cooker pan. Add mustard and cumin seeds. Add the green chillies and ginger garlic paste. Then add the onions and saute till translucent. Then add the tomatoes. Mix well.Add turmeric powder,chilly powder,coriander powder, garam masala and salt. Sprinkle some water. Mix all the ingredients well and cook for 5 minutes.Then add the rice.Mix well and required amount of water. Pressure cook the rice.
Serve hot with curd.
