Boiled black-eyed peas are also known as “aboboe”. When black-eyed peas are cooked and then mashed or pureed, as here, the dish is called “adayi.” When served with moistened gari and heated in coconut oil, it makes a simple, humble, but soothing and satisfying meal.
Adayi makes an easy meal when eaten with gari. Heat a little coconut or other vegetable oil, and dampen the gari with warm water and the heated oil and serve with the pureed beans.
