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

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.
