Black Eyed Peas Curry

I don't remember eating this in India but after I came to States, it has become one of our favorites for an easy dinner. I like to use the dried peas, soak it in water overnight and pressure cook it. That said, I don't think the canned one compromises the taste. It is just a matter of preference.

1 onion, finely chopped
4 green chillies, chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
2 medium potatoes, scrubbed, peeled,cubed & boiled
1 cup black eyes peas, soaked in warm water/ 1 can of black eyed peas
4-5 curry leaves
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp curry powder
1 tbsp cumin coriander powder
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp mustard seeds
Cilantro to garnish
  • If you are using dry peas and soaking in water, pressure cook them with salted water and turmeric, until 3 whistles
  • If you are using canned version, make sure to drain the water and rinse them under fresh cold water.
  • Heat a tablespoon of oil in a pan
  • Add cumin seeds and mustard seeds. Allow them to splutter.
  • Mix in the Green chillies and curry leaves.Fry them for a minute
  • Add the onions and saute them till translucent
  • Stir in the ginger garlic paste, cumin powder, curry powder
  • Add the tomatoes and potatoes and cook until the spices have blended in
  • Add the cooked black eyed peas and cover and cook for a few min
  • Garnish with coriander and lemon juice
  • Serve hot with rice
