Photo From: Split Pea Soup


  • 1/2 bag green split peas
  • kapha churna
  • ghee
  • onion
  • garlic
  • carrots
  • A couple of handfuls of barley or roasted buckwheat
  • broth or stock or water


Soak beans several hours or overnight first, rinsing often. 

Sauté kapha churna (see note below) in a little ghee, add onion, garlic, and carrots and sauté a little longer.

Add 1⁄2 bag green split peas and a couple handfuls of barley or roasted buckwheat.  Cover with approximately 1” of broth or stock or water and simmer for 1 to 2 hours.

You can get kapha churna from here (my ayurvedic doctor who is in my resources, Ayurvedic Wellness Center – Dr. Shekhar Annambhotla.).

You can also make your own kapha churna spice mix.  There are several recipes with slight variations on line so find the one that suits your taste.  The basic ingredients are:  ground ginger, black pepper, coriander, turmeric and cinnamon.
