Peacock Black Vatana

Peacock is a well known brand in New Jersey and also very famous for finest quality products. Black peas or Safed vatana is often used to make Ragda patice.  The peas look quite similar to garbanzo beans ( chole), except that they are smaller in size and Black in colour.

Safed vataana refers to dried Black peas. When fresh peas are not available or when you want to enjoy a starchier, hardier flavored legume, dried peas or Black vataana are the perfect choice as they are available any time of the year. Although they belong to the same family as beans and lentils, they are usually distinguished as a separate group because of the ways in which they are prepared. The different types of safed Vataana are all spherical, a feature that also sets them apart from beans and lentils. Dried peas are produced by harvesting the peapods when they are fully mature and then drying them. Once they are dried and the skins removed, they split naturally. While we generally associate dried peas with a deep green color, they are also available in a yellowish Black(safed) color, which offers a more delicate flavor.

Parboiled safed vataana- Parboiling is a cooking technique in which soaked hara vataana are partially cooked in boiling water, but removed before it is cooked all the way through. Many recipes call for parboiled peas as they longer to cook. Parboiling them in advances ensures that they get completely cooked in the final dish.

Health benefits:

  • Dried peas, a small but nutritionally mighty member of the legume family, are a very good source of cholesterol-lowering fiber. Not only can dried peas help lower cholesterol, they are also of special benefit in managing blood-sugar disorders since their high fiber content prevents blood sugar levels from rising rapidly after a meal.
  • Dried peas also provide good to excellent amounts of four important minerals, two B-vitamins, and protein--all with virtually no fat.
  • Dried peas, like other legumes, are rich in soluble fiber.
