Pe Pyote is made with dried whole yellow peas. In Burma, we have htamin kyaw( fried rice)with Pe Pyote. You can eat Pe Puote with Naan bread or Palarta too. Pe Pyote is very especial for breakfast in early morning. We all like it.

1tbsp of baking soda
1/2 tbsp of salt
1tbsp of black soy sauce
3 cup of water
1, Soak yellow peas with baking soda over night
2, Rinse over night yellow peas, place into the saucepan and add all the ingredients and 3 cup of water. Boil it in medium- low heat for 30-45 minutes or until the water has been absorbed completely. be sure to stir but not too much so it cook evenly and does not get burn. ( do not add more water)
With " Pressure- cooker" (if you have one)
3 cup of dried yellow peas , (some product call as yellow split peas)
1 tbsp of baking soda
1/2 tbsp of salt
1tbsp of black soy sauce
1/2 ( half ) cup of water
1: soak yellow peas with baking soda over night
2: Rinse over night yellow night yellow peas.
3:place yellow peas in to the pressure-cooker ,add all the ingredients and 1/2 (half)cup of water.
4:boil it in medium-low heat for 20 minutes or you can turn off the heat when you hear the pressure-cooker is whistle . After you turn off the heat , do not open the lid right a way leave it for 10 minutes and open.
Tip: It is more better with pressuer-cooker because save your time and does not break the peas. With saucepan some time I stir too much so the peas get break out.
