I actually learned this in the kitchen of a lovely Indian woman! The mix of spices is heavenly and fragrant.

2 cups water
1 tablespoon ghee, or oil
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
1/2 onion, diced
1 fresh red chilli
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
salt, to taste
1/2 cup diced tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped coriander leaves
- Rinse split peas well, then soak in water for 30 minutes.
- In a saucepan over moderate heat add the oil, when hot add the cumin, garlic, ginger and onion and cook until transperent.
- Add the drained split peas and stir to combine, then add water until it covers the peas by about 2cm. Add the chilli and tumeric then bring to a simmer until the peas are cooked; about 30 minutes.
