Potato Black-Eyed Bean Rice

I made Mexican burgers (recipe to follow tomorrow) and had a handful of black-eyed bean and a potato leftover. Made this super awesome easy rice which tasted D’VINE. You need an Indian spice mix like Channa masala/ Sambar masala/ Shahi Paneer masala [I used this one-It was amazing]

You need:

  • Shallots-3-finely sliced
  • Garlic-1-finely chopped
  • Cooked black-eyed beans-1 handful
  • Green peas-1 handful
  • 1 potato-broken into bits
  • 1 chives, few coriander leaves-chopped fine
  • Cooked Rice-1 cup
  • 1 heaped Tbsp-any Indian spice you like
  • Mustard seeds-1 tsp
  • Oil-1-2 tsp
  • Turmeric-1/2 tsp
  • Salt-to taste
  • Lemon-few drops (optional)


  • In a pan, add oil, mustard seeds, let it pop and add shallots, garlic, fry until transparent, add turmeric, potato, spice mix, mix well, fry for a couple of minutes, add the cooked black-eyed beans, green peas, salt, coriander and chives and salt and mix them all well until the raw smell of the spice disappears.
  • Add cooked rice, more salt, mix them all well and add some lemon juice, mix well and serve 🙂
  • Had the satisfaction of having had a good awesome meal 🙂

Note: You could add green chili/chili powder for super hot version of the same. If you happen to find shahi paneer masala spice in an Indian grocery, please stock up your pantry with it. You will definitely thank me when you taste it 🙂 [Awesome in curries and rice]

    • You like Indian rice varieties right? If you have ‘Shahi paneer masala’, use that as the seasoning for rice. The taste was awesome. 🙂 I think you will like it too 🙂
