BLACK EYED BEAN BALLS / LOBIA KE KOFTE




This is a new recipe from my mother. Black eyed beans are rich source of proteins and very healthy. Even though we have deep fried it in oil, you can shallow or stir fry.

Ingredients

1 cup Black eyed beans (lobia/ karamani)

3 tbsp all purpose flour (maida)

1 tsp red chilli powder

1 tsp cumin powder

A pinch of asafoetida

½ tsp garam masala

1/3 tsp salt

2 to 3 tbsp chopped coriander leaves

Oil for frying

Method

Wash and soak the black eyed beans for at least 8 hours in about 3 cups of water. Transfer the beans with the water to a pressure cooker, add ¼ tsp salt, close the lid and cook for 10 minutes or 2 whistles. Once done, allow it to cool, remove the excess water and grind it to a fine paste. Take the paste in a bowl; add maida, red chilli powder, garam masala, cumin powder, asafoetida, salt and coriander leaves and mix well. Heat oil in a pan, and when oil is hot enough; take small balls from the mixture and deep fry till golden brown. Drain off the excess oil and serve hot. It can be served as an evening snack with tea or as a side dish with rice and curry.
