I like this bean dish so much, I often find myself eating it up with a spoon, all by itself. At a meal, I serve it with Rogan josh or with Chicken in a fried onion sauce. Rice or Indian breads should be served on the side.
225g/8ozdried black-eyed beans (lobhia), picked over, washed and drained
Put the beans and measured water into a heavy pot and bring to the boil. Cover, reduce the heat to low and simmer gently for 2 minutes. Turn off the heat and let the pot sit, covered and undisturbed, for 1 hour.
While the pot is resting, cut the mushrooms through their stems into 3mm/⅛ inch thick slices.
