Green Split Pea Dal

Preparation

STEP 1

Put the split peas in a large 3-4 quart stockpot, and cover with water. Bring to a boil, lower to a simmer and simmer for 35-45 minutes until very tender.

STEP 2

While cooking the split peas, heat a large sauté pan over medium high heat and add olive oil, butter and cumin seeds. When the butter melts, add onion with a ¼ teaspoon of salt and cook for 5 minutes. Then add jalapeños, ginger, garlic, tomatoes, coriander, and turmeric and cook an additional 5 minutes until onions are tender.

STEP 3

When the split peas are very tender, and water is absorbed, add the onion mixture to the split peas and combine. Season with salt and black pepper and simmer for 5 minutes.

4. Garnish with cilantro and lemon juice and serve with naan bread.
