Recipes...kind ofI'm more than happy to post recipes...problem is, I don't really have them. You know, pinch of something here, adjust to taste? But hey, I'll give it a shot!
1 bag yellow split peas. I think it's about 2 cups. Lentils would work also.
I cleaned them off, then covered them with water and simmered for about 45 minutes or so. Lentils would be quicker. Then I added about an inch piece of ginger all mashed up with about 4 cloves of garlic in a paste. Then for the spices. Hmmmm.
1/2 t turmeric
3/4 ish t ground cumin
1/2 t garam masala
1/2-3/4 t curry powder
cayenne would be nice, but I kept this one mild
3 or 4 chicken bouillon cubes
1 can (or maybe less) coconut milk
I simmered all of this for a while until it was all nice and soupy and soft. The spices I listed are my best guess as to amounts. But they sure turned out delicious!
