    puppitypup's Note:

    Posted for ZWT. I haven't made it yet so the yield and time are a guesstimate. Soaking time on peas not included. Be sure to wear gloves when working with the hot pepper. Be careful changing the servings on this recipe, it might get confusing since I had to refer to specific amounts in the directions :)

    1. 1
      Wash, soak and rinse the peas per package instructions.
    2. 2
      In a large pot, combine peas and just enough water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until the peas begin to become tender and most of the water is absorbed.
    3. 3
      Stir in 1/4 c coconut milk and 1/2 c water. Continue to simmer over low heat, adding additional water as needed to prevent the peas from becoming dry.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile, heat oil in separate skillet, add curry powder and stir for a minute. Fry the onion and chile pepper until tender.
    5. 5
      Add the onion and chile mixture to the peas and continue to simmer until peas are tender enough to eat.
    6. 6
      Add the remaining coconut milk and water, cover and turn to simmer. Cook 5-10 minutes longer, stirring occassionaly. Season to taste, serve with rice or Chapati (unleavened bread).

      Made as directed. This recipe did not work for me, although I am a huge fan of black-eyed peas and coconut milk. It's possible I did something wrong while attempting to get Bunny Chow and Its Durban Curry working! It's also possible I'd make this again after someone else gives it a try. Sorry, Puppitypup! :( Made for ZWT4.
