Karamani Sundal

Black Eyed Peas also known as Cow Peas is called as Karamani in Tamil and Lobia in Hindi. It is high in fibre and low in fat and calories. Lobia is a rich source of protein, iron and potassium too. It's really good to include lobia in our regular diet. You can make a gravy with it or you can make a sundal like this and have it as a snack. This sundal is easy to make, you can pack it for kids snack boxes. I also pack this as a mid morning snack for my husband.
