Karamani/Black eyed beans(white or brown) - 1/2 cup
Coconut Milk - 1/2 cup(thick)
Coconut oil - 1 Tablespoon
Curry leaves -  few
Green Chilli - 1 or 2 nos slit.

Preparation Method
Pressure cook karamani with water upto 3-4 whistles.
In a wide vessel, cook pooshanikai with water, green chilli, salt and a pinch of turmeric.
Once its done, add the boiled karamani and coconut milk.
Just let it bubble up and dont over boil.
Off the stove add coconut oil and curry leaves.
