Vegan Potato and black eyed peas curry

Potato and black eyed peas curry is a healthy and creamy delicious curry prepared in a cooker or insta pot. It is vegan and is perfect to enjoy with steaming rice or flat breads.


  • 1/2 cup black eyed peas or (canned black eyed peas)
  • 1/2 cup chopped potato
  • 1 roma tomato
  • 1 cup coriander leaves
  • 1 inch ginger
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 4 cloves
  • 6-8 black pepper
  • 2 green chillis
  • 1 tsp dry mango powder
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • salt
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tbsp oil


1. Soak black eyed peas overnight (or 1-2 hrs) and drain and rinse . I prefer soaking them overnight as they cook faster. Put the peas, potato, and salt in a pressure cooker along with salt and water. Give one whistle.

2. I like the smell of fresh coriander, so I added 1 cup of leaves and 1 tomato. Two tomatoes and 2-3 tbsp of chopped leaves can be added instead. Blend ginger,tomatoes,cumin,coconut, cloves, black pepper,coriander leaves, green chiilis along with 2-3 tbsp of cooked black eyed peas water(this helps gravy thicken). You can dilute the paste by adding more water once ithe paste is smooth

3. take a deep bottom pan, heat oil and add the paste, turmeric powder, garlic powder and saute for a minute. Now add boiled peas and poatoes and let the gravy boil for a minute. Add salt and mix well.

4. serve hot with roti or rice.
