Split pea lentil soup (dhal)


Red split pea soup or dhal curry as we call it for that comfort food on a rainy day ๐Ÿฒ๐ŸŒง Thanks to my mama for the recipe...so delish!๐Ÿ’•


Ingredients:

Red split peas - about 1.5 cups

1 tbsp salt

1/4 tsp turmeric

4 cloves garlic smashed

1/2 inch ginger chopped

1 tsp mustard seeds

3-4 garlic diced

1 onion or 4-5 spring onion diced

1/2 tsp chili flakes

1 tsp cumin


Bring lentils to boil with salt, turmeric, smashed garlic and chopped ginger. Simmer on low for 15-20 minutes until softened.

In a separate pan, sautรฉ mustard seeds, diced garlic, onions (I used green onions since that was all I had), cumin and chili flakes. Add to the boiling lentils. Garnish with cilantro and serve as a warm soup, with rice or with roti. Its delicious! :)


Note: You could also add in a few tbsps of coconut milk at the end if you have some on hand.
