How to Make Black-Eyed Pea Fritters

  • Soak black-eyed peas overnight, rinse and drain.
  • In a food processor, combine the beans, onion, peanuts, thyme, cayenne, vinegar, water and salt and grind until you have a smooth mixture.
  • Transfer to a bowl, cover and refrigerate for an hour.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Transfer the fritters to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain.
  • Keep them warm in an oven warmed to 200 degrees if serving later.
  • Serve with hot pepper sauce.
