Pocasi/ split green pea soup

Asalamu alikum


Well it sure has been a long time since i posted so i thought let me share this Pocasi recipe with you while i remember






This soup is made from split green peas

first i wash the peas and then add them to my pot (i used a pressure cooker)

i added onion ... garlic..... i diced up carrots ...courgettes...and potato into  really small bits and added to the pot i also added black pepper....salt ...cumin...and razel hanut....

fill with water and placed lid on  and allowed to cook about 30 to 40 mins in total ... then let the pressure out and open then  stir.... if you need more water add and allow to cook towards the end add some tomato puree and allow to thicken up a little .... when i make this i do not use oil and i should say that this type of soup will continue to thicken and even the next day you will need to add more water to thin out ... but masha`allah is a really nice soup
