Recipe ingredients and directions:
Indian Yellow Split Peas
Yield: 4 Servings
1/2 cup yellow split peas
5 cups water
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
2 Tbsp ghee
2 Tbsp chopped onions

1 tsp cumin seeds
Combine peas, water, turmeric, salt and pepper in a pot over medium
heat and cook for about 30 minutes, or until peas have disintegrated
and sauce has thickened to desired consistency. Stir every 10 mins
or so and watch to make sure peas don't boil over. Remove from
heat when done.
Heat ghee in a small frying pan and add onions, garlic, and cumin.
Saute until onions and garlic are just turning brown. Pour tarka
into the dal. Mix well, cover and leave for 10 mins. Serve with
steamed rice or roti.
