When I was first started to cook on Bounty I wanted to recreate the flavors I was familiar with in Singapore, but the ingredients I had were very different. Given what I had available to me and the dinner I had decided to make I wanted to make a side dish that went along with my Indian inspired meal.
I created coconut peas, a can of coconut milk, some ginger and garlic, a little curry powder and sweet little green peas. It’s an easy dish and I could eat a huge batch all to myself, but that’s how I feel about all pea dishes. Give me a big bowl of little green pearls and I’ll eat the whole thing, all to myself.
