Black Eyed Peas

This recipe goes well with the Kadhi recipe below as this one is also healthy and almost fat free. The two recipes were given to me by a friend (thanks again Mayuresh) and so I decided to try them out and he was right .. they were both absolutely delicious and a wonderful combination. This can be eaten with rice or chappatis. In addition to a high protein content, black-eyed peas serve as an excellent source of calcium and are also high in vitamin A and folic acid. Healthy, Easy and Tasty.. a winner combo.. enjoy :)

500 gms Black Eyed Peas
3-4 green chillies chopped
1 medium onion chopped
1/4 tsp haldi or turmeric powder
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp dhania powder or coriander powder

1 tsp jeera powder or cumin powder
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp oil
