SPICED PEA PUDDING (side dish)
1/2 lb yellow or green split dried peas
1 tsp whole cumin seeds , 1 tsp turmeric, 1/2 tsp ground cinnammon
1/2 tsp chilli powder, 6 whole cloves (or 1/2 tsp ground)
1/2 tsp grated nutmeg, 2 tsp 'lite' soy sauce
Wash the peas well and discard any discoloured ones. Put them in a
large saucepan with water and bring quickly to the boil. reduce the
heat and simmer, partially covered, until they have completely
softened and are beginning to break down (the time taken will depend
on how old they are). check the water frequently and add more as
When the peas are almost done, gently heat the soy sauce and spices
for a few minutes, stirring often.
When the peas are cooked , drain if necessary and add the soy sauce
Mash to a thick 'cream' , transfer to a hot dish and serve.
These are good served with curries or even cold with a salad. Cold
leftover s go quite hard and can be sliced and grilled on toast the
next day (recommended).
Of course - if you substituted the peas for lentils you have one quick
way of making Dahl !
