    I love east Indian food, but these days am not into using a bunch of hard to find ingredients, as I now live in a small town that has no ethnic foods to buy, except central American stuff. This recipe is Americanized for ease of prep and available ingredients. Serve with rice and favorite flatbread.


    • 1-2 T oil
    • 1 small diced onion
    • 2-3 cloves chopped garlic
    • 1 Roma tomato, seeded and chopped
    • 1 small potato, peeled and chopped
    • 1/2 tsp ginger powder
    • 1 T cumin powder
    • 1 T McCormick's Curry Powder or your choice
    • 2 cans black eyed peas, drained
    • 1/2 cup spinach, chiffonade, or frozen, chopped
    • 4 C veggie or chicken broth
    • 1 bay leaf
    • salt to taste
    • 1/2 C plain yogurt ( I use Greek)
    • Garnish: chopped cilantro


    1. Saute onions and garlic in oil.
    2. Add spices and cook a few seconds.
    3. Add broth and vegetables and peas.
    4. Add salt, if needed.
    5. Simmer, covered, 30 minutes, remove from stove.
    6. Stir in yogurt, top with cilantro.
