Fidel Castro - Dal Soup

Scrummy and what's more it's very hard for the pan to burn dry.

  • Wash 10 oz channa dal (yellow split peas).
  • Put the dal in a pot with 2.5 pints of stock (I use 2 Knorr chicken stock cubes, but these are possbly not vegetarian).
  • Add 24 black peppercorns and 15 whole cloves tied in a square of cheesecloth.
  • Add 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric.
  • Simmer gently for 1.5 hours or until the dal is soft (or 20 mins in a pressure cooker)
  • Strain the soup through a colander and press the dal through too (or use a food processor, but don't make the mixture too fine).
  • Squeeze the juices out from the cheesecloth into the soup.
  • Add a little salt if the stock is not already salty enough.
  • Serve with a dash of freshly squeezed lemon juice.
