Black Eyed Pea Curry Recipe

I love black eyed peas. They've got this deliciousness to them, a mild sweetness that makes them one of the yummier beans out there. Here's a curry made with black eyed peas that I think you'll enjoy!
It's got a lot of different spices which make it have a rich flavor without needing to buy any exotic spice mixes.
Serve over rice or with flat breads or even eat plain.
