This was a delicious dinner for our family. I followed all the ingredients as stated, but had to make some adjustments with the cooking as I found the recipe two hours before dinner. :) I soaked the lentils in hot water for about 45 minutes, and used canned black-eyed peas. I cooked the lentils in my large skillet, covered, with only two cups of water, and after they were pretty much cooked, I added the beans and cooked a bit longer. It probably only took half an hour to cook despite not using a pressure cooker. We didn't have cream, but topped it with yogurt and chili sauce... YUM! Thanks for posting!

Excellent recipe, I had run out out of black eyed beans so I used kidney beans(rajma) instead and the result was equally tasty. Fill definetly be having this more often. thanks

A very hearty and flavorful dish. I also used the dry black-eyed peas. Since I don`t own a pressure cooker, I used just a big pot on the stove, and it didn`t take that long anyway. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Mini R.!! I will defenitely make this again for DH and myself!

Nice and hearty! I made it for a New Years Day gaming gathering, using the traditional black-eyed peas. I added a bit of honey to give it some savoriness.
