Instructions :

  1. Rinse and pick through the black-eyed peas. Put them in a pot and cover with water and add salt to taste. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and cook until the beans are soft, 30-45 minutes. Drain.
  2. While the beans are cooking, prepare the coconut curry sauce. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the cumin seeds and fry, stirring, for 20 – 30 seconds or until the seeds are fragrant and begin to crackle.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium and add the onion. Fry until transparent then add the garlic and ginger and fry until soft. Add all the spice powders and fry, stirring, for about a minute or until they release their aroma.
  4. Add the tomato and raise heat to medium-high. Simmer, stirring occasionally and crushing the tomatoes with the back of your spoon until you get a thick sauce. Add the black-eyed peas, coconut milk and salt to taste. Simmer for a couple of minutes or until the sauce reaches the consistency that you like.
  5. Serve with fresh chopped cilantro sprinkled on top and basmati rice.
