Black beans are also known as "black turtle beans". They are very delicious and also nutritious. They have many essential nutrients that our body needs to function properly. I had a bag of black beans lying in my pantry. As it is Navratri now, I decided to make sundal with black beans for a change. Today let us learn how to make healthy and delicious black bean sundal following this easy recipe.
Soak black beans in water overnight or for 5-6 hours.
Drain the water, add 1/4 cup of fresh water and pressure cook beans until soft but not mushy. I kept a vessel inside the cooker and pressure cooked for 3 whistles. If cooking directly in the cooker, you must add more water to prevent it from getting burnt.
Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds, when it splutters, add urad dal, red chilli and hing.
When dal turns golden brown, add ginger, green chillies, curry leaves and saute for a few seconds.
Add black beans after draining the water if any. Add salt needed and mix well until it is well coated with the seasoning.
Add grated coconut and remove from heat.
Garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves and enjoy!
