Black Eyed Peas Masala

 

We love the taste of Black eyes peas in our home and I like how convenient it is to cook, with no prior soaking needed! This is a simple way of cooking, exactly similar to other dals.

 

What you’ll need:

  • Black Eyed Peas  – 2 cups
  • Oil for seasoning – 1 tbsp
  • Black Mustard Seeds – 1 tsp
  • Jeera/Cumin Seeds – 1 tsp
  • Hing/Asafoetida – 1/4 tsp
  • Onion – 1 (chopped)
  • Garlic – 2 to 4 cloves
  • Ginger – 1 inch piece (finely chopped)
  • Green Chilies – 2 to 4 (or to taste)
  • Turmeric Powder – 1 tsp
  • Tomato Paste – 1 1/2 tbsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Cilantro – a small bunch finely chopped

Method:

1. Wash and cook the Black Eyed Peas with sufficient water. I use my pressure cooker.

2. In a large pot, add the Oil and its slightly warm, add Mustard and Cumin Seeds and Hing and let splutter.
