Tangy Lobia Curry – Tangy Black Eyed Bean Curry

post modified on March 3

Written by Puja

Continuing on with my last recipe, the recipe for today is another Lobia recipe that I am calling “Tangy lobia curry”. I like lobia a lot and because of its nutritional value, it is also a very healthy option for your lunch and dinner. And the best part about this lobia curry recipe is that it is quick to make, doesn’t use a lot of masalas and hence is easy on your stomach as well.

Pulse and cereals are natural protein providers and is hence should be an essential part of your diet. I ensure that I cook one or, the other pulse for my meals everyday. Our sedentary lifestyle these days requires us to ensure that our food is nutritious. And this curry would be one addition to your list of recipes that will provide you the required nutrition everyday.

This tangy lobia curry goes well with jeera rice, rotis and paranthas as well.
