"These savory fritters are made with split pea flour and a blend of mild spices. An East Indian snack that goes well with mango chutney!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

split pea flour
water, or as needed
2 1/2 cloves
green onion, chopped (green part only)
vegetable oil for frying
I had to go out and buy yogurt, this was so tasty. Couldn't find split pea flour, so I used my blender and made my own. And used the "self-rising flour" on this site. Lot's of work for my first batch, yes, but I knew it looked good. I am glad I have leftover batter, more every day. This is going to be my India food week, along with Elijah's Phulouries, of course.
I think that the onion spoiled this recipe. If I make it again, I would omit the onion and use less garlic. Make sure it is the split pea flour that comes from the Caribbean; it comes in a package or make your own by soaking the peas overnight and then grinding it. I bought some in the market, but it was not the best, the taste was not right.
I personalized this recipe by using garbanzo bean flour instead of the split pea flour, iand rye flour (as the self rising flour). I cooked this as if they were pancakes. Great flavor! Easy to make! I'll be making this again. Thanks for the inspiration!
I had all the ingredients on hand--believe it or not--except the self-rising flour. I had a little all-purpose flour and a little whole wheat flour. So, I sifted the two together with salt, sugar and baking powder to create self-rising flour. Also, I had on hand Urad flour, which is black bean flour. I went ahead and mixed everything together and into the oil it went. The fritters came out golden, light, spongy and so flavorful. Add mango chutney to that and what a wonderful treat! It's delicious.
I like these! I burned them--I'm just not so good at frying. I think I'll make them into patties next time and eat them like hamburgers--with chutney of course! I used my small cookie scoop to make the balls, so they were kind of big. Maybe that was my problem. Oh, well. I had to go on a bit of a search for the split pea flour, but found in an international market. Best I can tell it's chickpea flour, so that's what I bought. Thanks for the recipe!
WOW! These were great! I had to end up making my own split pea flour. Which my processor didn't like. But otherwise these were easy adn yummy. I used fresh chives from my garden instead of green onion and added a pinch of cayenne. My friends and family loved this also. I ate them with cilantro chutney!!!!I ordered some split pea flour and will making them again tomorrow night!
i've been making this since i was a little girl. My family has a traditional hand grinder that we grind basically the same ingredients into. I dont think that this beats that in taste but it was a pretty good recipe.
I just made these - they are fragrant and flavorful! One note: I needed double the amount of water to get a thick batter (I used 1.5 cups). I also used "gram flour", which, based on the packaging, I assume is the same as split pea flour (it is yellow lentil flour). In the future I would increase the amounts of both types of onions (I did so after I tried the first batch), and perhaps experiment by adding peas. A nice dish overall!
