Method

Rinse peas and soak in water for 10 minutes.

Drain, rinse and place in a medium saucepan with 3 cups water, salt and 1/2 cup of the onion.

Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, cover, and simmer until the peas are tender, 45 to 50 minutes.

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.
