tip: soak the split peas overnight.
It's recommended to soak the yellow split peas in cold water overnight. you'll notice the split peas will become a bit more tender the next morning.
Drain the split peas. Peel and finely chop the onion and garlic cloves. Peel and grate the carrot and chop the tomatoes into very small pieces.
Heat sunflower or vegetable oil in the large skillet and add the cumin and mustard seeds. Wait until they start to pop and then add the finely chopped garlic and onion.
Saute for a few minutes, then add the yellow split peas, turmeric and water. Bring to a boil and turn down the heat. Let it simmer for half an hour, add in the grated carrot, tomato pieces and coconut milk and let it simmer about 15 minutes more.
Check if the grated carrot and split peas are fully cooked. Season with pepper, salt and maybe you like a bit of ginger syrup too. Serve with plain rice and/or naan bread or any other flatbread.
