My experiments with Slow cooker series - Blackeyed Peas Curry (Bobbarlu)

I like balckeyed peas very much. It tastes so good even with only a good  tadka. It can be served as a snack or a curry with Rotis.

It is very hot in NC and since my son likes water very much, so we frequent Carowinds. As I knew we would be back by dinner time,  I wanted the curry to be ready by the time we reach home. So I tried Blackeyed peas.It did not require any soaking ,was cooked perfect, Not mushy , held it's shape even after 6 hrs cooking.
