Zanzibari Beans With Coconut and Cilantro

“POSTED FOR ZWT 4. A vegetarian main dish from Zanzibar, which is part of Tanzania. I am uncertain about cooking and prep times!! The recipe was written down by Troth Well. It is served with vegetables and rice, sometimes with Jollof Rice. As usual I had to guess prep times and did not include the possible preparation of the black-eyed peas (or beans).”
