Persian Yellow Split Pea Stew

When comes to travel, everyone I hear wants to travel to Europe. Europe is huge and so diverse. I wonder if ppl know what they want to see, experience. One of my dream travel is Iran. Until I visit , at least I can make food and eat. May Buddha blesses me.😊 Since am making all this Persian food, hope Iran will invite me.

Recipe I followed is here:

Since am vegetarian, I omitted meat. Here’s how I made it.

  • Soak yellow split peas in water for an hr so will cook fast. They are available at most of the American grocery store.
  • Cook them in water and a stick of cinnamon until just done and are not mushy.
  • On the side, heat olive oil and sauté zucchini sticks like seen in picture for few mins. Cook them lightly and remove on a plate.
  • Sauté chopped onion with crushed garlic. Add red chili powder, turmeric, black pepper powder. Add chopped tomatoes and mix.
  • Add onion tomato mixture to dal and simmer on low heat. Add salt.
  • Add zucchini sticks at the end just before serving.
  • Enjoy!
