  • Put the green split peas along with the onion, tomato, about half the garlic, the chilli if using, salt and turmeric in a medium to large saucepan. Add 3 cups of water and bring to the boil over medium to high heat.
  • Lower the heat, cover and simmer for about 25 minutes or until the peas are soft. If the peas are still not soft and almost all of the water has been absorbed, add more water, a little at a time, and continue cooking, as the exact cooking time and amount of water required will vary depending on the peas and the desired consistency for the dahl.
  • Gently heat the olive, coconut or sesame oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the remaining garlic and cumin seeds and fry for just 1 minute. You want the garlic and cumin to become fragrant, but you don't want to burn them. Pour the spiced oil onto the dahl.
  • Garnish with some chopped coriander and eat on its own or serve with some basmati rice.
