Pour the barley and peas into a bowl. Boil some water and pour it on the barley and peas. Leave it for a few hours. Once the barley swells, get a pot of water and put it on fire. Pour barley and peas and boil until the barley softens.
While it boils, put in pieces of potato and all the spices you like.
Grate the carrot and cut the onion. Heat the frying pan, put butter and vegetables. Fry till they soften. Put in the soup just a few minutes before you finish cooking. Enjoy!
