Vegan Black-eyed Peas Cumin Rice/Jeera Lobia Chawal

Jeera rice is a well known Indian dish prepared with cumin seeds and rice. Its quite a popular and well known dish in North Indian cuisine and in some part of Pakistan this dish is an everyday rice dish for many. Quite an easy one pot meal to prepare with less efforts. Usually served along with rajma, jeera rice makes a prefect meal to enjoy without any fuss. Cumin seeds when fried in oil, brings an extreme flavor to this simple rice dish. To give a twist i couldnt stop myself to add some already cooked black-eyed peas to this flavourful rice. Yes adding lobia aka black-eyed peas to this rice turned this aromatic dish more healthy and rich in protein. I dished out this cumin rice for our weekend lunch and served with chicken kurma and liver masala. Trust me we had a fabulous sunday special lunch.

Sometimes I do add lobia to make pulao. This is the only way my kids have lobia. Infact I use left over lobia curry also to make pulao
