Ginger, Split Pea & Vegetable Curry (Subzi dalcha)

January/February 2008

Your rating: None Average: 4.4 (35 votes)

Protein-rich yellow split peas combined with fresh vegetables yields a hearty, stewlike curry—perfect for a cold winter night by the fireplace, with a loaf of crusty bread. Try any combination of vegetables—sweet potatoes, winter squash and spinach create a sweeter offering. Don't be alarmed by the number of chiles—the vegetables and split peas bring the heat level down to make each bite addictive without being excessively hot.

Perfect winter meal

Delicious, filling, and so flavorful! My variations:
- used lentils instead of yellow split peas (what I had in my pantry)
- added a small bunch of kale
- added a small chopped tomato
- used two carrots
- browned the cumin seeds/garlic/Thai chiles in ghee and grapeseed oil
- added the cilantro and ginger while the vegetables were still cooking
- I cooked the vegetables an extra 10 minutes
- did not use cornstarch

*** cumin seeds browned very quickly; I almost burned mine

easy to make

Incredible! Even my "must have meat with every meal" husband loved it. I had never had eggplant boiled and liked it better than fried. The eggplant in this dish gives an illusion of meat chunks and the yellow peas make it hearthy. I followed the recipe to the T. I will make it again the same way. Next time I'll make it thicker and serve it on top of Basmati rice. Yum!

This recipe is so wonderful! My boyfriend and I subscribe to Eating Well and try many of the recipes but this is one we've made over and over and over again. We puree a cup of the veggies to make it a little thicker, like a stew, and he eats it over grilled chicken. The leftovers can also be turned into a delicious breakfast--just reheat the curry and eat it with scrambled eggs and toasted pita. Yummm.
