Back after a long break with a recipe : Black eyed peas gravy

Hi everyone! Sorry for disappearing for a long time. Things got very hectic and i could not find time to update the blog or check other blogs. Inspite of this, it was nice to stay in touch with most of you all through mails and FB :-) It is going to be hectic for atleast one more month as we are moving to another house and you know how it goes with a move. I didnt want all of you to think i have abandoned this blog and thought of doing a quick post. My friend G taught me this recipe and we all love it. It goes well with both Rotis and Rice.

Black-eyed peas gravy :


Ingredients :

Black eyed peas - 1 pack (frozen) (I think it is approximately 1 lb)

tomatos - 2

Onion - 2

red chillies - 5

dhaniya / coriander seeds - 1 spoon

grated coconut - 3 spoons

Salt to taste

Cilantro - to garnish

Method :

Grind dhaniya, redchillies and coconut with little water and keep aside.
Pressure cook the black eyed peas.
Cut onion and saute in little oil and when it is translucent, add chopped tomatoes and saute till the tomatos are well cooked. Now add the cooked black eyed peas and the paste. Add salt and little water and cook till the raw smell disappears. Garnish with cilantro.
I shared this recipe with my mom and she tried it and loved it :)
