Black Eyed Beans curry which is also commonly called as Chawli Kathod or Chavalichi Bhaaji is a dry preparation curry dish made with boiled black eyed bean or lobia is cooked in tomato onion gravy, spiced to give a nice taste. This curry is often served with chapatti, roti or rice. Chawli kathod is a fast to cook dish, easy to prepare and often made in North India especially in the state of Maharashtra.

The black eyed bean is also commonly known as cowpea, lobia or chawli in Hindi and Bobbarlu in Telugu. The black eyed bean is small, soft textured, white in color with a black eye in the center. When cooked the beans have a creamy texture and nutty taste. The botanical name of the black eye pea or beans is Phaseolus Aureus. Black eye beans are unique because they taste wonderful without any spices.

They may be cooked as dal or just boiled to a thick consistency and mixed with diced tomatoes, onions and salt for a snack. It is actually a subspecies of the cowpea and grown around the world for its medium sized edible bean. This bean is available as fresh or dried bean and can be used for preparing soups and many side dishes. It is an excellent source of fiber, folate and a good source of iron and has various health benefits as well as important vitamins and minerals. In North India, lobia is cooked as a dal and in southern India they are specially made during the Navaratri festivals as Prasad or offering to the god which is known as Sundal. 

Sundals are made using various dried lentils. Some of them need to be soaked for 8 hours, while the smaller varieties need to be soaked for 1 hour. The lentils or peas are boiled with salt and tempered with little mustard, dry red chillies, curry leaves and freshly grated coconut. It’s very simple and easy to cook and tastes delicious.

Another place where you regularly find this sort of dish is the beaches in South India. You can find vendors selling these sundals made of various legumes and beans. The smell, aroma of the hot and spicy sundal is very refreshing and yum. They are normally sprinkled with little lemon juice on the top which makes it taste heavenly. They have a smooth texture, pea like flavor and are good when mixed with other vegetables.
