I don’t normally post on Saturdays but I have a backlog of delicious recipes I want to post and am anxious to share them with you.
Renay, a reader, sent me this bean curry recipe. As evidenced by the number of curry-flavored dishes on my blog (Coconut Chicken Curry, Chicken with Green Curry Sauce, Basil Chicken in Coconut Curry Sauce, Shrimp Stir Fry in Coconut Curry Sauce), she thought I would enjoy it, and she was right!
To be honest, I was a little skeptical upon first viewing – I’ve never even eaten black eyed peas (I know, the horror!), let alone bought them to cook with, but I can’t resist a good curry recipe, so try it I did. And it was fantastic.
Who knew that black eyed peas would make curry so delightfully yummy?
This meal is healthful and can be made in seriously less than 15 minutes. The best item to note, however, is the wonderful flavors brought in by the garam masala, cilantro and ginger.
I served this with naan (which is addicting in and of itself), and in my book, it was pretty nearly a perfect meal. Filling, oh so delicious, and fast. I know many of you will be skeptical, too, but I hope you try it and love it as much as we did! Thanks for the recipe, Renay! (Update 07/2013: As you can see from the updated photos, I’ve taken a hankering to throwing in some cut up fresh cauliflower and letting it simmer with the mixture. Totally divine.)
