Soups – Ham and Break up Pea Soup

There are various methods of making ready this soup and you should utilize cut up inexperienced peas or yellow ones, relying which you favor, or which you’ve gotten in your retailer cabinet. Personally I favor the inexperienced ones and use the yellow ones to make fava, which is a dip fairly like hummus. You possibly can depart the soup chunky or puree it till it’s thick and clean; it’s completely as much as you. I like so as to add cumin seeds and coriander seeds which have been dry-fried to convey out their flavour and a dried crimson chili, however you do not have to make use of this stuff. Should you do need a spicier soup than ordinary, use a teaspoon of coriander seeds and a couple of of cumin seeds, dry-fry them for a minute or two till they launch their aroma and add them to the soup while you add the water. The dried crumbled crimson chili pepper may also be added right now. This recipe is for the normal inexperienced cut up pea soup with ham. I hope you prefer it!
