Lobia Masala – Lobia Masala Curry

April 29, 2019 Dals/Gravies  No comments

Lobia is nothing but black eyed peas. Lobia Masala is a delicious gravy recipe perfect to go with roti and rice. This requires some planning time to soak the black eyed peas. But need not be soaked overnight like Rajma or Chana. Other than that this can be made very quickly. There are 2 ways of doing this. One way is by cooking the lobia first and then adding it to onion-tomato base and the second way is making the onion-tomato base, adding the soaked lobia to it and pressure cooking it. I have followed the 2nd method. Check my Rajma Masala gravy if u want to follow the 1st method.

Chayote, known as chow chow in tamil is usually made as a kootu in any South Indian household. I make this Chow Chow Fry quite often than kootu. This fry goes well with roti and rice. So whenever I make this, Chotu has it with rice and we have it as a roti wrap for lunch. Two in one purpose solved right?!? This veggie takes very less time to cook and is a super easy recipe.

Aloo / Potato is an universal favourite and we are no exception to it. Whenever I think of making any gravy the first dish that comes to my mind is something with paneer. The next would be this Dum Aloo. Its a very flavourful, rich and creamy side dish with baby potatoes. Goes very well with rotis, phulkas, or any pulao varieties.

Raw Banana in a kofta?? Yes it tastes equally good as other kofta’s like potato, paneer etc. Raw Banana Kofta Curry is a sumptuous gravy recipe for roti, naan or pulav varieties. Usually recipes with raw banana are quite limited. I normally end up making the most common poriyal or stir fry. This is the best recipe with Raw Banana.
