- 1 cup yellow split peas
- 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt, plus more to taste
- 2 cups chopped yellow onion, divided
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 2 teaspoons garam masala
- Ground black pepper, to taste
While the split peas are cooking, heat oil in a skillet and sauté the remaining onion with garlic and garam masala over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until they are golden, soft, and just beginning to brown, 10 to 15 minutes.
Add the onion mixture to the cooked peas, stirring to combine. Simmer 10 to 15 minutes to blend flavors. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
