Next, add the soaked and drained yellow split peas, turmeric, salt, pepper, allspice, clove, and chilli flakes. Stir well and cook at medium heat for 5 minutes. Then, pour enough water to fully cover the split peas and simmer for 40 minutes until they're soft.

Step 3

Once ready, blend one-third of the split peas into a paste and mix it back into the stew for a creamy finish. Top with fresh coriander and chillies, and serve with boiled basmati rice and steamed green beans on the side. Enjoy!
