This shy little number is comforting and enjoyable. No strong flavours, just savoury, mellow, deliciousness. The Indian split yellow peas do not have a strong flavour like other split yellow peas, and the vegetables and peas just work together beautifully. A little cumin and sea salt perk them up, making for a simple, tasty dish that is comfort food to me. Perfect with a side salad and some chickpea flour flat bread. Devoured with delight by my 6 year old, and enjoyed with evident pleasure by my husband, both of whom can eschew slightly more esoteric flavours. Nice.
