500g – Also called small red Lobhia or Chawli. Cowpeas provide a rich source of proteins and calories, as well as minerals and vitamins. A cowpea seed can consist of 25% protein and is low in anti-nutritional factors. Curries are best made with chawli. Add ghee or oil to the pan; add chopped onions and cumin seeds. Sauté until slightly brown. Add ginger, garlic, tomatoes and chopped parsley to the onions. Let it simmer for five minutes or until the oil separates from the seasoning mixture. Add to the beans. Garnish with fresh cilantro, parsley or dollop of yoghurt.They are excellent in soups and salads.
