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.

amazing! super quick to make and delicious! I used canned tomatoes as I cannot bring myself to buying tasteless fresh tomatoes in Canada in the dead of winter. This also saved me a few steps.
Yum! I used dried black eyed peas as they cook very quickly, no soaking required. I had some Swiss chard which I chopped and stirred in towards the end of cooking. We had it served over couscous. I was out of rice. Absolutely delicious. Will make this again.
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
