Spinach and Black-eyed bean Curry (Palak Lobia)

After a long time its been sunny today with clear sky all day, otherwise its been rainy and cloudy most of the time even though its end of spring. I was late in making dinner  but even then i was able to capture few good pics with natural light. Hope to have 
Spinach is always my favourite leafy veggy , which i combine with everything like lamb (palak ghost) , cottage cheese and with all beans for mains. And spinach is one of the best leafy veg to increases blood count. And Beans are good source of proteins and  an alternative for vegetarians. 
Todays post is packed with Iron and proteins. This is one common recipe for me in daily cooking, its easy, no stress, tasty and goes well with both rice and roti's. With no further delay lets check the process.....
