Rehydrating dried bean question

Just curious
Im following a recipe for Mulligatawny soup.
The first ingredient is written exactly as follows:

Split pigeon pea, soaked - 1/2 cup



Does this mean take 1/2 up of dried split pigeon peas and soak them ?
or , does it mean to only use 1/2 cup of split pigeon peas after soaking ?

Just curious, its not critical, as I can play around with the consistency if I have too.

Larry

Put a half cup of peas into a liquid and soak it. Poorly written recipe.

I agree Andy.

Larry, just make sure you keep the peas covered with liquid until they have absorbed all that they are going to absorb. Overnight is a very good idea.
