This is a vegetarian appetizer made from black-eyed peas.

 
 

Ingredients

  • 2 cups black-eyed peas
  • 7 ½ cups water, divided
  • ½ cup diced onion
  • 2 tsps green chili puree
  • 1 tsp garlic puree
  • 1 ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp turmeric
  • 1 cup chopped coriander
  • Canola oil for deep frying
 

Preparation

  • In a large bowl, add the black-eyed peas and seven cups of water and let soak overnight. Strain the water from the black-eyed peas and rinse, removing all water.
  • Place the black-eyed peas in a blender or food processor with one-fourth cup of water and all remaining ingredients except the coriander and oil. Puree, adding an additional one-fourth cup of water if needed.
  • After the mixture is blended, place in a mixing bowl. Add the coriander and stir to combine.
  • In a pot, heat oil over medium heat. Take two tablespoons of the black-eyed pea mixture and form a ball in your hand. Flatten slightly to form a small patty.
  • Place the patty into the oil to fry for about two minutes or until cooked. Flip over for another two minutes or until cooked.
  • Remove and place on a paper towel–lined tray to absorb the excess oil. Repeat with remaining pea mixture.
