Not a big fan of green split peas, but I love the yellow. I usually do make either dal or an American style split pea soup -onion, carrot, celery, broth or stock, and the peas - usually in a crockpot (sometimes with a bit of smoked pork such as some smoky pork - such as a bit of ham, bacon or a smoked pork chop - a little really does go a long way).

If you add less water to either (or just cook the split peas with broth), you can make a really good side dish (about the consistency of mashed potatoes).

I've even made what amounts to "sloppy joes" by cooking yellow split peas in water or broth. I sautee chopped onion and green pepper until tender and then adding the cooked peas and bottled or homemade barbecue sauce or sloppy joe sauce (like Manwhich).
