Another favorite in the Indian pulse arsenal are black-eyed peas. This variation is from the coastal cuisine of the Konkan region of southwestern India. The tangy black-eyed peas are often accentuated with pieces of squash or elephant yams. It is difficult to find elephant yams in U.S. markets, so I use a medley of zucchini and butternut squash. This simple, delicate recipe with its flavors of sweet and tart is one of our favorite meals.
