Kidney beans, Black eye peas & vegetables Healthy soup

Yesterday I made this yummy soup for dinner. This smells awesome and tastes delicious. Apart from haing excellent smell and taste we have to look at the another important and intresting feature of this recipe. It is healthy and can be had with roti(Indian Bread) or Bread or Rolls. We had with toasted white bread. You can also have this soup with out any bread. You can modify this recipe to your taste, that is you can add more spices or reduce the spices and cook. You can even choose your favorite vegges also. That is why I like this soup a lot. Try it and you will ike it for sure.

Ingredients
Kidney beans 1/2 cup
Black eye peas-1/2cup
water as required
carrot-1 medium size sliced
Tomato-1 medium size schopped
Cauliflower/broccili-1/2cup florets
Green chili-2
salt to taste
Method

I am making the mild spicy version of this recipe. you can prepare it to you taste by reducing or increasing the amout of ingredients. Wash and soak Kidney beans and Black eye peas for about 4-6hrs.
Now take a pressure cooker and add Kidney beans, black eye peas, chili, carrot, tomato, cauliflower and cook it for 3 whistles by adding required amout of salt. When all the pressure escapes from the cooker open it and mix well with spoon. Serve hot.

For more spicy version
Prepere tempering (talimpu/thadka). For this heat 2tbsp of oil in a pan and add 1tbsp of cumin seeds and 1/2tbsp of fresh garlic crushed. When the garlic turns golden brown mix with the cooked soup. You can also add 1/4tbsp cumin powder and 1/4tbsp of coriander powder and cook it again.

Garnish with coriander/cilantro and serve hot.

Hope you like my recipe.
