    Snowcloud's Note:

    I developed this recipe through years of experimentation. It was based on a cheap dish that a former roommate showed me to make. He said that it litterally cost pennies a bowl. He just boiled a bag of yellow split peas and added spicy curry powder until the taste was right. I needed a little bit more of a fragrant flavour. It's still inexpensive to make and good to freeze. You can top it with some sour cream and/or avocado before serving to mellow the spice.
