Ingredients

  • 1 cup - black-eyed peas ,
  • 1/2 medium Onion (diced)
  • 1/2 cup - raw Peanuts
  • 1 tsp - Thyme (minced)
  • 1/4 tsp - cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp - Apple cider Vinegar
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp - water
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 - bell pepper (finely chopped)
  • 1 tbsp - cornmeal
  • 2 tbsp Chickpea flour
  • Oil for frying
  • How to Make Black-Eyed Pea Fritters:

    1. Soak black-eyed peas overnight, rinse and drain.
    2. In a food processor, combine the beans, onion, peanuts, thyme, cayenne, vinegar, water and salt and grind until you have a smooth mixture.
    3. Transfer to a bowl, cover and refrigerate for an hour.
    4. Remove the batter and add the chopped bell pepper and cornmeal and beat with a wooden spoon for 2 minutes. Add 2 tbsp chickpea flour if the fritters fall apart while frying.
    5. In a saucepan, heat oil to about 350 degrees. Spoon the batter into the oil, taking care not to overcrowd the pan. Fry, stirring around, until the fritters are golden-brown, for about 2 minutes.
    6. Transfer the fritters to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain.
    7. Keep them warm in an oven warmed to 200 degrees if serving later.
    8. Serve with hot pepper sauce.
