    Have you seen Linda Woodrow’s recipe for pigeon pea dahl? I’m still shelling mine in the hope that I get enough to try it out.

      I did indeed get enough. And it was great, and as promised even better for lunch the next day. The process gave me a renewed appreciation of how we don’t appreciate grains and seeds enough. Even using the Lis Fekonia method of shelling the pigeon pea (putting them in a cloth bag and whacking the daylights out of them with a rolling pin) it was still a lot of work to get enough for a feed. I reckon I’d get really skinny if I had to do that every day….
