1 cup split husked mung dal beans or yellow split peas
2 cups water
1 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp (1/4 stick) margarine
1 large onion, cut into paper-thin slivers
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 whole clove


Pick over the beans or peas and discard any discoloured ones or any small stones. Wash the beans in a colander under cold running water.
Pour the beans into a heavy 2- to 3-quart saucepan. Add the water, turmeric, cayenne pepper and salt and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low and cover partly. Simmer for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a medium frying pan over high heat, melt the margarine and then add the onion, cumin seeds and clove and reduce the heat to medium. Saut for approximately 6 minutes, or until the onion is translucent.
Once the beans have cooked through, add the onion mixture and simmer for 1 to 2 more minutes. Serve immediately. (Read: Vegan diet: Yes it's possible to get protein without animal cruelty)
