Black-Eyed Pea Sundal/Black-Eyed Peas Dry Saute -Revisited

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Sunday, June 24, 2012

For the Final Week of BM#17, i have chosen the theme : Picture Make-over. Learning is a Continuous Process. Though it has been 3 years since i have started blogging, i m yet to master the art of Photography, recipe writing and few more commas to add!!!! So, When Srivalli announced Picture Make-over as a theme for this marathon, i immediately decided i will take this up for a week, May be i can even do a month-long marathon on Picture-Makeover and it might as well end up as a Blog Make-over!!!!!! 
So For today i have chosen to Revisit One of My First Recipes, i posted when i started this blog : Black-Eyed Bean Sundal/Dry Saute.
