Black eyed Peas and Spinach

This recipe is a very healthy one, which is yummy too...The peas and spinach is a must try combination. Goes well with rice or roti.


Black eyed peas - 1/2 cup
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Chilly powder - 1/4 tsp
Spinach - a small bunch, chopped
Onion - 1 small, chopped fine
Green chilly - 2 , slit lengthwise
Jeera/Cumin seeds


1. Soak the black eyed peas for 5-6 hours. Cook it with turmeric, chilly powder and water. I cooked it in a pressure cooker till the first whistle and wait till the pressure is gone.
2. Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds. Add onions, chopped spinach and green chillies. Add salt and mix well. Saute for a minute.
3. Drain the cooked black eyed peas and discard the water. Add peas to the pan and saute for 2-3 minutes it is mixed well and gets dry.
