Armenian Kidgeri

Soak a cup of split peas for several hours, then fry with two

thinly-sliced onions and a cup of rice. When slightly brown, cover with

water and boil. The water should be three inches above the peas and

rice; also add a little bag of mixed spices. Fry some meat in a separate

pan. It may be either beefsteak, Hamburg, or mutton. When rice and peas

are soft, place a layer of meat in a dish and cover with a layer of the

rice and peas. Repeat until all are used, being careful to have the rice

and peas on top. Steam together and serve with cocoanut and fried onions

sprinkled over the top.
