Default Yellow Split Pea Dhal Recipe for the Crockpot (Vegan!)

Yellow Split Pea Dhal Recipe
Serve with rice, or, add extra liquid to make a more soup-like dhal. Caution - it's got a bit of a kick!

INGREDIENTS:

* 1 cup yellow split peas, uncooked
* 2 cups water or vegetable broth
* 1 tsp turmeric
* 1/4 tsp cayenne
* 1/2 tsp salt
* 1 tbsp margarine
* 1 onion, diced
* 11/2 tsp cumin, whole seeds or ground
* 2 whole cloves
* dash pepper, to taste

PREPARATION:
In a crockpot set on low, place the peas and water or vegetable broth. Add the turmeric, cayenne and salt, and cover.

In a large skillet or frying pan, heat the onion, cumin and clove in the margarine.

Cook for 4 to 6 minutes, until onion is soft. Add the onion and spices to the crockpot, and cook for 6+ hours.

Add a dash of pepper and more salt, if desired, and serve hot with rice or alone in a soup bowl.



I made this tonight, having adapted it to the crock. I doubled it, but it still wasn't a huge amount. It was quite good & definitely spicy!
