BEANS WITH COCONUT AND CILANTRO

 

3  Garlic cloves, crushed 
1 ts Chilli powder 
1 tb Cumin 
1 tb Coriander 
2 ts Turmeric 
1 tb Fresh cilantro, chopped 
1 c Desiccated coconut 
1 c Black eyed peas, cooked 
1 c Potatoes, diced and parboiled 
Lime or lemon juice to taste 
2 tb Coconut or vegetable oil 
Salt

 

Heat the oil and sizzle the garlic together with the chilli powder for half a minute. Next, add the cumin, coriander, turmeric and cilantro leaves. Cook for another minute or two, stirring often to blend. Add the coconut and mix this in too.
Add the cooked beans and potatoes. Season and then pour in the lime or lemon juice. Cook for another 10 minutes or so until everything is blended together and then serve with green vegetables.
Note: I served this with Jolof Rice made without the black-eyed peas. It complemented this dish very well.
