A pinch asafoetida
Salt to taste
1 tsp  lemon extract

    If you have pressure cooker then we can start immediately otherwise beans needs to be soaked overnight at least.
Boil the beans using sufficient water in pressure cooker(take two whistle on simmer heat).
Separate the water completely from the cooked beans. Allow to cool.
Take a heavy bottom pan. Heat oil and prepare the seasoning with mustard,  cumin seeds,asafoetida,green chillies.
    Add the dry spices and cooked beans to the pan and stir gently.Add salt to this and mix gently without breaking the beans as they can be mushy.
Finally squeeze the lemon and garnish with cilantro leaves.
Serve hot with rotis/chapatis.

-For gravy version of black eyes beans, add grated garlic, onion to the oil and sauté until the onion turns golden/ transparent then add tomato puree and cook till oil seperates from the paste.Rest procedure is same.
