Method

  • SPLIT PEA FRITTERS
  • 1. Make curry sauce and set aside (recipe below). Drain and rinse split peas. Transfer to a food processor and process until it forms a paste
    2. Transfer to a large bowl, add onion, garlic, cilantro, turmeric, cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper a salt and stir to fully combine
    3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat, divide batter and form into balls. Form fritters by flattening balls with the palm of hands. Cook fritters, about 4 at a time for about 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Turn fritters and cook for another 3-4 minutes. Repeat until batter is used up. I also love to cover the skillet for about 2 minutes midway during cooking to make sure the middle of fritters is fully cooked
    4. Serve hot with curry sauce
