How to Make Dhall

Dhall is a soup made from slip peas. There are many versions of this Indian soup, here I have brought the Trinidadian  (Caribbean) version from this soup. 

Serves 6

1 cup or 8 oz. split peas
2 cups water
1 tsp. turmeric powder
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. oil
1/2 tsp. cumin (geera)


  1. Boil the peas in 2 cups of water until it comes to the boil.
  2. Add turmeric, 1 clove of garlic and onion: cover, lower heat and cook until peas are tender , add more water if necessary.
  3. Add salt to taste and beat until mixture become thick and smooth. Remove from heat.
  4. Heat oil in small pot; add cumin and remaining garlic and fry until brown.
  5. Pour in Dhall mixture and stir well.

Serve Dhall with rice. You can add a hot  pepper to the Dhall during cooking. Remove it before serving.

Good Eating!!!
