In a pressure cooker:

1 cup split pea
4 water or broth
1 large onion chopped
1 large carrot chopped
1 large smashed garlic (not grated or pressed bc garlic will loose flavor if too small)
2 tablespoons curry powder
1 pinch of cumin (if a more pronounced curry flavor is desired)
1 pinch of cayenne (if heat is desired)
1 Tablespoon of oil ***Do not skip***

1) Add all ingredients at once and stir.
2) oil gasket on both sides and insert into lid.
3) bring mixture to a light boil
4) when mixture is boiling, close lid and wait for indicator to go up to Level 2
5) when Level 2 is reached, turn heat down to keep pot stable at Level 2 for 30-mins
6) after 30-mins, use manual or preferably natural release.
7) when pressure is fully released, add salt, pepper, more curry/cumin/cayenne to taste.
8) add toppings (scallions/cilantro/crackers) prior to serving

This soup will continue to thicken as it sits, more liquid can be added when leftovers are reheated the next day or when the soup is brought down off pressure at the end of cooking.

If the soup seems to lack dimension (as some pressure cooker soups tend to do) a splash of an acid such as lemon, vinegar or wine after the soup is brought off pressure will remedy that.

If split peas have been soaked, cooking time can be reduced to 20-mins or less depending on how long the peas have been in storage.

Or course a ham bone or salt pork can be added withball the ingredients but I didn't have one in my pod fridge.

This was on my must-try list until I saw "pressure cooker".  My wife has a phobia with pressure cookers so we don't own one.  Thumbs Down

I'll post the regular recipe in another section. I think the regular one required 2 1/2 hrs + of cooking time. All measurements are the same except no additional spice or acid is needed at the end. The salt and pepper can be added an hour in, and the garlic should be finely sliced or pressed. There needs to be constant stirring to prevent the split peas from becoming a sticky silt at the bottom of the pan and water needs to be regularly added to make up for what evaporated.
