Kidney beans  and whole yellow peas are the good sources of fiber ,lean protein,and low in fat.They also reduce cholesterol level. Most importantly they are gluten-free food.This recipe is easy to make.I have used the sweet peppery sauce to cook this recipe.Yellow peas have got a unique flavor which I love.You can get yellow peas from any Indian shop.

I have soaked yellow peas and kidney beans overnight and boiled them in the pressure cooker separately.Yellow peas took about 2 whistles to cook and kidney beans took 4 to 5 whistles.
