Black-eyed peas palya / ಅಲಸಂದೆ ಕಾಳಿನ ಪಲ್ಯ

ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ಓದಲು ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಮಾಡಿ.

Black eyed pea has a good nutritional value. So, I prefer using it often. Daily I will prepare some or the other kind of side dish for chapathi and frequently I will go for Black eyed peas palya. 
This is one more old posting from my Kannada blog.. few more to go to balance both the blogs :)


Preparation Time: 20 - 25 minutes
Servings: 3

Ingredients:
Black eyed peas - 2 cup (soaked in water for 4 - 5 hours)
Urad dal - 1 spoon
Mustard seeds - 1/4 spoon
Pinch of asafoetida
Chopped green chillies - 2
Few curry leaves
1 medium size onion - chopped
Sambar powder - 1 1/2 spoon (according to taste)
Salt
Amchur powder - 1/2 spoon
Sugar - 1 spoon
Oil - 3 spoon

Method:
Heat oil in a pan, add urad dal, mustard seeds and asafoetida. Once the mustard seeds start spluttering, add curry leaves and chopped green chillies. Saute them for a minute.
Then, add the soaked black eyed peas, salt, sambar powder, amchur powder and sugar. Add water just enough to cover the Palya mixture and cook covered on medium flame.
Saute them occasionally and add water, if required. Once the peas are almost cooked, add chopped onion and cook for 5 more minutes.
By the time it is done, all the water content will be evaporated. If you wish, you can retain little water and make it a gravy.
This Palya goes well with roti, chapathi or dosa.
