Wash and soak the black eyed beans for 8 hours. Drain and wash them thoroughly in fresh water and pressure cook them enough salt and water for three whistles. After the steam releases open the pressure cooker, drain the water and keep the beans aside.

Meanwhile chop the onions, green chillies, garlic, carrots, celery, tomatoes and keep them aside.

In a wide pan heat 2 tsp of oil, add cinnamon sticks, cloves, bay leaves and wait for nice aroma to arise.

Add the finely chopped onions, green chillies, garlic and sauté until they are translucent.

Now add the tomatoes and fry until they are mushy.

Add the carrots, celery and sauté well until the vegetables are soft.

Now add the cumin powder, garam masala powder, salt and mix really well.

Add the cooked beans and mix well. 

Add the vegetable stock or water, coriander powder, tomato paste, coriander leaves and stir well.Close the pan with lid and let it cook for about 15 minutes.

Switch off the stove, add required amount of lemon juice, black pepper powder and adjust the amount of water accordingly. Serve this filling and aromatic soup with toasted bread and enjoy your day.

Addition of vegetable stock is optional, just replace it with water.
I have added carrots and celery; you can add capsicums and other vegetables of your choice.
