Black-Eyed Bean Soup (Mauromatiki soupa)

I am sure that at some point everyone has tried the Black-Eyed Bean soup in one version or another.  I love all sorts of soups and today, let’s just say the weather is cold, cloudy and pffff…!  Oh and I forgot to mention windy!!!  I am sitting at my desk at the moment, looking out at this tree in my front garden which is quite tall, and due to the strong winds one of it’s branches keeps banging on the window.  (I think that says it all in regards to the weather).  😦

Back to soups, always a good choice for any time of the year, at least in my home.  I have come across so many lovely recipes from bloggers friends and bloggers from all over the world that I would love to try to make in the future 🙂 

This is a definite MUST on my To-Do list. 🙂   I hope you enjoy, let me know if you try this out….have a great day everyone!! 🙂

Ingredients:

400 grams Black – eyed beans

  2. In hindi language we call it as lobhia and the soup you call is something we eat like lobhia Chawal . Chawal means rice.
    We make lobhia by adding oil in to the pan and when the oil becomes hot then we add ginger garlic paste ; onion ; some khare masale .
    And when the onion turns red and masale gives out a fragrance we add in tomato puree. We cook it until it become thick and some kind of dark red mixture. Then we add salt ; garam masala ; red mirchi ; and all.

    And for rice we add oil ; jeera; some eliachi ( black one ) and salt along with rice.

    So😉
    I’ve given you indian way of eating this.

    It is hot served with pickle or chatni’s
