    Andtototoo!'s Note:

    This recipe can be made with the chicken or without it, depending on what you are in the mood for. You can make this with yellow split peas or use moong dal (yellow split kind) which cooks a bit faster and is what I prefer to use.

      Cook the onion, stirring frequently, until the onion is 3/4 cooked.

      Stir in the turmeric and the cayenne and mix well with the chicken.
