Split Pea Soup in the Pressure Cooker


1 person made this

The Indian flavours in this soup make it one of my favourites. Split peas are a great food for active people, high in protein and low in calories.


Serves: 4 

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 350g split peas, soaked overnight and drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 small tin diced tomatoes
  • 4 cups (1 litre) water
  • salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:18min  ›  Ready in:28min 

  1. Heat the olive oil in the pressure cooker and brown the garlic. Add the split peas, turmeric, garam masala and curry powder and stir well.
  2. Add the tomatoes with their juice and the water and seal the cooker. Cook 18 minutes from when it reaches pressure.
  3. Turn off heat and release steam. Season with salt and pepper. Remove two small ladles of the split peas. Blend the remainder until smooth, then add the reserved split peas and serve.
