Ingredients

    2 cups dried split peas
    5 cups water
    2 tsp tumeric
    1 tsp red cayenne pepper
    1 tbsp olive oil
    2 large onions
    2 tsp cumin, ground
    1 tsp ground cloves
    1 tsp black pepper

Directions

Brown the oil and onions until soft. Add the cumin, cloves and black pepper and cook until browned. Place into pressure cooker, or just brown in the pressure cooker if your allows that.

Add the peas, water, tumeric and cayenne pepper. Set electronic pressure cooker to HIGH PRESSURE for 6-10 min. Check to make sure peas are soft and disintegrating. Cook a little longer if you need to. You could add salt to this but I never do.

Serve with some whole grain like wheat berries, brown rice, or bulgar. Can add some chutney and yogurt on top of each dish if you want. Count the extra calories for the grain and the toppings.

About 1 cup per serving. I can't remember if this makes 6 or 8 servings, but I'm calculating it as 6 servings.
