Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup dried chickpeas
  • 1/2 cup split peas
  • 1 red onion (large, roughly chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon coriander seeds
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 8 tablespoons self rising flour
  • 1 teaspoon pepper (crushed, optional)
  • vegetable oil (for frying)

Directions

  1. 1. Put the chickpeas/spilt peas in a large bowl and add enough cold water to cover them by at least 2 inches. Let soak overnight, then drain. Or use canned peas, drained.
  2. Place the drained, uncooked peas, food processor fitted with a steel blade. Process until blended like bread crumbs put aside in a large bowl.
  3. Place Onion, parsley, cilantro, and Garlic in the food processor fitted with a steel blade. Process until blended like bread crumbs. Squeeze out water in a towel add to peas and mix well
  4. Mix together 6 tablespoons of the flour, baking powder, cumin, curry, crushed pepper, salt and pepper add to peas. You want to add enough flour so that the dough forms a small ball and no longer sticks to your hands. Turn into a bowl and refrigerate, covered, for 2 hours.
  5. Form the mixture into balls about the size of walnuts, or use a cookie scoop.
  6. Heat 4 cups of oil to 350 degrees in a deep pot and fry 1 ball to test. If it falls apart, add a little flour. Then fry about 6 balls at once for a few minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and enjoy.
