Recipe Ingredients for Crock Pot Indian Dahl

2 c split peas
1 sweet potato
2 carrots
2 tbsp fresh minced ginger
2 tbsp fresh minced jalapeņo pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp cumin
2 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp powdered turmeric

  1. Put the soaked, rinsed dhal in an 8-10 qt crockpot

  4. Cover and cook 6 - 8 hours on low

  6. Turn the crockpot heat setting to high

  7. When the dhal is soft but still intact, fish out the bay leaf
