    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 :)

      Wash, soak and rinse the peas per package instructions.

      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.

      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.
