It tastes awesome with both rice and roti. I, personally, love it with roti. Depending upon what you would serve this lobia masala recipe with, adjust the consistency. If you serve with rice, add little bit more water and keep it thin. If you are serving with roti, then you can keep it little thick.
Unlike the chana, this black eyed peas get soaked faster. But for best results you can soak them overnight. Or even 5 to 6 hours would be sufficient. And for cooking too, it doesn’t take as much time as the chana. Just 3 to 4 whistles in the pressure cooker would be more than enough. But depending upon the quality of the lobia that you get, use your judgement while cooking the lobia.
Today I am sharing the Pakistani version of the lobia recipe masala. There is not much of a difference from the Indian version. But I have seen this being made in the Pakistani homes more often. I might be wrong, but that’s what I have noticed.
