This is not something I have had before or even heard about . I had a handfull of Blackeyed peas from god known when - it must be at least a couple of years old.  a little bit of Red chori (van payar )at he bottom of the container , a lone potato and a few raw bananas that needed to be used up .All of these were cooked together and it turned out really tasty.I will surely be making  this one again.



















Ingredients:
  1. Raw banana - 4 washed and cut into small pieces
  2. Potato - 1 peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes
  3. Blackeyed peas - 1/2 cup
  4. Red chori /unakka payar - 1/2 cup

Method:

Soak the blackeyed peas and red chori together in water overnight or for few hours.
Add the potato and soaked pulses into the pressure cooker and add enough water to just cover the ingredients and cook for 2 whistles.
Turn the flame off and leave the cooker aside until the pressure escapes by itself.
Meanwhile cook the raw banana pieces with 1 cup water until it is soft .
