DIRECTIONS

  • Wash, soak and rinse the peas per package instructions.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Meanwhile, heat oil in separate skillet, add curry powder and stir for a minute. Fry the onion and chile pepper until tender.
  • 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).
