Throughout the Southern states of America, black-eyed peas are served for good luck on New Year’s Day. They’re excellent with stir-fried cabbage—also considered a good-luck food, since it supposedly represents folded currency—and rice, of course (in the South, this dish would be called Hoppin’ John). In India, my family’s recipe for rongee, Hindi for “black-eyed peas,” is just as tasty.

I enjoy any kind of curry! So when I saw this recipe I decided to try it - the result was awesome! This time I used our Redmond m90 multi cooker, it's just perfect for curry
I didn't have the dried chiles or cumin seed, so I toasted chile powder and cumin powder. Added two cans of diced tomatoes instead of fresh and added a some chicken broth. Mmmm tasty!
Superb! Love the exotic spice -- I did add a little extra of most of them. Didn't miss meat, either! Wonderful on rice. Will definitely make again!I cooked my own black-eyed peas, simply to avoid the extra salt. I think that contributed to the toothsomeness of the dish!
Very flavourful and delicious alternative to Hoppin' John. I used slightly less cayenne and only one dried chill pepper. Rather than using canned black-eyed peas, I cooked mine from scratch. As accompaniments, I prepared some white rice and the stir-fried collard greens from Issue 105.I will definitely make this again.
