Black-Eyed Peas and Cortices

I was decorticating these black-eyed peas yesterday, and noticed for the first time that the pigmented black eye marking is on both the cortex and the kernel. That seemed pretty cool. I used these to make Yamuna Devi's Black-Eyed Pea Pooras, but added too many cardamon seeds. When I get the recipe right I will let you know. Best wishes for the New Year to all who hold from the Gregorian calendar.
