Black-Eyed Pea Masala

Black-Eyed Pea Masala created by Susiecat too

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.

ingredients

directions

  • Drain your peas.
  • Heat oil/ghee (allow to melt) in a medium heavy pot over medium heat and fry chiles, garlic, onion, and ginger for approx 6 minutes.
  • Add your curry powder/garam masala, turmeric and cumin, and then add the tomatoes.
  • Cook for approximately 3 minutes until it begins to thicken and add your peas and salt to taste, along with 4 cups of water.
  • Allow water to boil and then reduce your heat, cover and cook for approximately 2 hours until your peas are done and the sauce is nice and thick.
  • After the peas are done, fold in your yogurt (may wish to use a little more or little less to your tastes) and cilantro, and serve.
  • This goes well with rice or with chappati/roti.
  • Garnish with minced cilantro.

    I included plantain balls and used coco milk instead of tomato sauce.

    Use cilantro to garnish or on a separate pan, fry small amount of onion, cilantro and crushed red chilies with oil until they turn little dark. After that you can pour them on top of peas. Enjoy.

    Soak the peas overnight, then it can easily be cooked in pressure cooker in 10-15 mins

    just a suggestion . you could try cooking the peas in a pressure cooker for about 10mins to soften the peas before you cook them in the curry pot .
