If you have no so much time, then previously within 10 minutes calcinate peas in a dry frying pan, mixing each 30 seconds then pour out it in cold water and leave at least for about 30 minutes.
Take a pan (better with a thick bottom), put in it the washed-out peas, fill in with a clear water (water has to be one centimeter higher than peas level) and put on strong fire. After boiling you cook a product within 10-15 minutes then sharply pour out a glass of ice water in a pan. Again bring pan contents to the boil and continue to cook at least 40-50 more minutes on slow fire. After time add to a pan the necessary amount of water, vegetables (if you do soup), boiled meat. In 10 minutes until ready of all vegetables salt a dish (very important not to salt peas at the beginning of cooking as process of a razvarivaniye will happen much longer).
