    love4culinary's Note:

    This is a recipe that I adapted from a recipe my MIL made while I was in India. It is FABULOUS, and is even served for breakfast quite often in her house! (I could eat it for every meal LOL) I donut know the actual name of the chilies they use, but at home I generally use either 2 of the small chiles labeled "hot green chiles" from the market, or I use serranos. The ginger I generally just run over my microplane.

      Love this! Delicious combination of flavors and spice. This has become a staple recipe in our house. I often use canned beans and add a sweet potato or two which works really well. Also have tried using less oil which works fine too. Can easily be extended to serve a few more by adding a little more yogurt or liquid.

      This recipe completely exceeded my expectations! I made this for new years day, thinking it would be fun to have black eyed peas for the new year. I will be making this again before next year. I used half indian curry & half garam masala. This was a great slow cooked on the oven all day vegetarian dish that makes the house smell wonderful and you can't wait to eat. Next time I might experiment with chickpeas, I think that would be great too.

      This dish is easy and delicious. I used 2 whole, large jalapenos and wished I had only used one. Really spicy, but good. The yogurt makes it nice and creamy. I will make this again. Thanks for posting.
