Some Indian Food recipes and Kitchen Tips

Tips on Indian Cooking

When I started cooking first I had to learn everything by trial and error. These are some of my recipes for my daughters who are both newly married [:-)] whenever they feel nostalgic for Mom's cooking. Others are also welcome !

Sundal- Black eyed peas

Soak a cup of black eyed peas (karamani) for five to seven hours. Or keep it soaked in fridge overnight if the climate is very hot.

Boil water in a pan and cook the peas till soft. Or else pressure cook for five minutes.

Drain the water.

Heat a tsp of oil in a pan.
Put in half a tsp of mustard, 1 tsp urad dal and when they pop and brown, add two red chillis broken into pieces and 1 tsp of grated ginger and a pinch of perungayam(heeng). stir quickly and add the cooked peas.
Stir on low heat and add a tbsp of grated coconut as garnish and switch off heat.
This is the basic recipe for sundal. (Cooking time of various peas differ, otherwise the basics are the same.)
