                    Serve hot with plain basmati rice or rotis.

My Note:

1.I used dried black eyed peas,if you are using canned black eyed peas then rinse and drain the water,use it.
2.We are adding salt while pressure cooking the black eyed peas so add little salt which is required only for masala.
3.After adding the mushroom don’t cover and cook it.No need to add water because after adding mushroom it oases out water so it is enough for the mushroom to cook.
Do try this Masala and Write your Feedback to me.

Have a Nice Day!!!
