  • 3Add carrots and sweet potatoes and cook until potatoes are just tender about 10 minutes.
  • 4Add raisins and ginger and saute for about another minute.
  • 5Add tomato paste and curry paste and stir until combined. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • 6Place split peas in a large pot and add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil. Stir vegetable and curry mixture into the pot with the split peas. Add coconut milk and return to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook, uncovered, for about 1 hour.
  • 7After one hour, add lentils and cook at least another 30 minutes to an hour more until split peas and lentils are very tender and falling apart.
  • 8Serve as is, topped with added hot peppers and green onions if you like, or may be served over Jasmine rice.
