Long Beans and Black Eyed Peas Dry Curry

This is one way to include protiens in your diet, or when you want to increase the amount of the curry you are making ....
You can use frozen black eyed peas or the canned ones.
I soaked the dry ones the previous night and drained them out...
You Need
Long Beans - Chopped - About 2 cups
Black eyed Peas - 1 and 1/2 cups
Salt - 1 to 2 teaspoons
Oil - 1 teaspoon
Mustard - 1 teasoon
Red Chili - 1
---> In a kadai, put the long beans and the Black Eyed Peas and add 1/2 cup water and salt and close the lid...
---> Keep looking at the pan every 5 minutes or so to make sure the water in the pan does not evaporate making the curry burn
--->Add more water if needed in between
--->Once the curry is cooked, you will know this when you can break the long beans when gently pushed with a fork
--->Switch off the stove and in a separate pan, add the oil and the mustard seeds and when it sputters add the red chili and pour it while sizzling on to the curry that you made...
Garnish with coriander and curry leaves,

This can be had with rotis or rice.....
