Add the tomatoes and saltfish. Cook for about 2 minutes.
Then add the split peas. Pour some more water and cook for about 5 minutes.
Add the rice and more water to cover all the ingredients. Cover the pot and leave for about 15 minutes to simmer.
Uncover the pot and stir the rice often to ensure that the rice don’t stick. A little more water may have to be added if rice needs to cook a little bit more. When most of the water has evaporated and the rice is tender remove and cool before serving.
