Now, my mother-in-law gave me the "recipe" verbally and I usually don't follow written ones to the letter anyway. So, I don't have precise measurements for what I used. This will be on the spicy side which is typical of Indian cuisine but leaving the rice or quinoa unseasoned will balance it out and of course for those who like it extra spicy, like myself, you can add more seasoning to taste.
1 cup yellow split peas
2 cups water
1 clove garlic (chopped)
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. cardamom
2 tbsp. curry
couple pinches sea salt
Put all ingredients in and simmer on low medium heat until reaching a stew like consistency. Stir regularly. Serve over steamed rice or quinoa. This will make enough for about 4 servings.
I served this with sweet potatoes as seen in the pic. I know the potatoes look boring but they weren't. I drizzled some local whipped cinnamon honey over them so, I had the sweet and savory flavors rockin' my world. Please share comments if you try this one. Enjoy!
Note: Sorry my pic isn't really good. I don't have a digital camera. I wouldn't object to a donation. *wink*
