Ingredients

1 ½ cups split peas
1 teaspoon salt
1 medium onions
½ green bell peppers
1 teaspoon turmeric
½ teaspoon curry powder
1 ½ teaspoons mustard seeds, black
1 lemon
juiced

Directions

Boil the yellow split peas in 2 cups water for about 30 minutes--until they are tender but not so long that they lose their shape.

They should be rather dry, like mashed potatoes, but keep an eye on them.

You may need to add a little more water along the way.

Stir in salt. While the peas are cooking chop onion and green pepper.

Combine with tumeric and curry powder and set aside.

Heat up a heavy pan with a lid.

When it is very hot, add mustard seed and cover.

The seeds will pop noisily; shake the pan during this process to make sure they don't burn.

When the sound quiets down, add the onion mixture and a little water for sauté.

Sauté until onion is transparent and golden, and then stir this mixture into the peas along with the lemon juice.

Serve with Chapatis (Indian bread) or over basmati rice, or whatever creative way you feel like doing.
