Never heard of this but I have one of her books...I think it's called Flavours of the Spice Coast. I'm sure this was yummy!!!

hmmm, erissery! i once used to (not-like-so-much) almost everything legume-y, but now that I dont have the luxury to eat these traditional stuff on a whim, I have come to appreciate these a lot!!

Looks delicious, HC! I think my MIL prepares this with the plain brown beans (not the blackeyed ones).
