Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

  • 15 gms -black eyes beans
  • 10gms -oats (powdered)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1-2 green chillies finely chopped (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons, finely chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 2 tablespoons, finely chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons red chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of garam masala
  • Salt to taste
  • 1tsp Olive oil
Step 1 To begin making the Lobia Kebabs Recipe (Black Eyed Bean Patties), we will first wash the black eyed beans well and soak with fresh water overnight. Step 2 Once the black-eyed beans are soaked well, cook the beans until the beans are soft and mashable. You can use a sauce pan or the pressure cooker to cook the beans. Step 3 If you are using the pressure cooker, cook until you hear two whistles. Step 4 After two whistles, turn the heat to low and simmer for about 5 minutes and then turn off the heat. Step 5 If using a pressure cooker, cook until the first whistle, then turn off the heat.  Allow the pressure cooker to cool off naturally. Once cooled, drain the excess water and keep the beans aside. Step 6 Meanwhile, powder the rolled oats in a grinder and keep this ready. Step 7 Add the cooked beans to a bowl, keeping a few tablespoons aside. Step 8 Mash the beans using a potato masher or a fork. Step 9 Add powdered oats, finely chopped onion, garlic, fresh coriander, mint, red and yellow peppers and the unmashed beans together in a large mixing bowl. Step 10 Mix well, adding salt to taste as also cumin powder, red chilli powder and garam masala powder. Step 11 Using your clean hand mix everything well, bring it together, mashing slightly. Check the salt and spice levels and adjust to suit your taste. Step 12 The next step is to shape and cook the kebabs in a pan. Divide the mixture into medium patty size portions of 2-inch thickness and diameter. Step 13 Heat a skillet on medium heat. Add a teaspoon of oil, spread this all over the skillet using a clean absorbent kitchen towel, in such a way as to coat the surface well, but not visible. Step 14 Place the shaped black-eyed bean kebabs on the skillet. Cook the kebabs on medium heat. Step 15 After about 2-3 minutes or after the under-side turns brown, flip carefully using a flat spatula. Step 16 Again cook for 2-3 minutes or until brown and crisp on both sides. Step 17 Transfer the Black Eyed Bean Kebabs to an absorbent paper towel. Repeat the same process with the rest of the mixture. Step 18 Serve the Lobia Kebabs(Black Eyed Bean Patties) hot.
