Coconut Green Split Pea curry

Coconut Green Split Pea curry

There's nothing as satisfying as a filling legume curry. Add some papadums, brown rice and greens in the mix and you have yourself a balanced meal! This is one of those recipes, I love to make in big batches to eat throughout the week. If you prepare different side dishes, it has the potential to turn into a different meal every day.
