Author's Notes

I have used dry beans in this recipe. But you can use canned beans too. Drain out the water from the cans and rinse the beans under running water before using them. While I have used black-eyed peas here, you can make this vegan chili using any other beans like chickpeas, white beans, pinto beans, kidney beans, etc.

Soaking is not essential for black-eyed peas, but cooking time can be shortened if they get a quick soak in hot water. Plus it becomes easy to digest.

If you don't have an Instant pot, you can make this dish on the stovetop or any other pressure cooker.

If you don't have garam masala, you can quickly make your own. But if you are pressed for time, here is a temporary fix. In order to make this garam masala substitute, just mix 1 part cumin with ¼ part allspice.
