Vanpayar Mezhukkupuratti - Simple Red cow peas

This is one of my favourite Kerala dishes. I love simple dishes that's made with less oil, less masala. I have been gathering recipes from the internet and I came across this blog which had the recipe that gave the exact same taste of the red cow peas which I tasted as a child. So, all credits to "kaipunyam".
