dhal curried split peas


an inexpensive indian meal full of good flavor. from mennonite cookbook more-with-less which says to serve this with a vegetable curry, tomato chutney, cottage cheese or yogurt and a fresh fruit try. i sometimes use mung beans in place of the split peas. the long prep time is to soak the peas.
