Baya Kyaw/Burmese Yellow Split Pea Fritters

Yellow split peas fritters, a crispy snacks tastes awesome with chilli sauce which ressembles quite like our South Indian channadal fritters, but without onions ,ginger and green chillies..this fritters tastes fabulous and prefect for evening snacks, we enjoyed having this fritters with tamarind chutney i prepared for pani puris, they tasted super delicious with this crispy fritters...It seems this fritters are quite an appetizier for a party menu or else for an evening snack, this fritters is quite easy to make and one of the popular fritters in Burma..Whoever like deep fried beauties can give a trial to the splendid fritters and tastes fabulously awesome with hot chilly sauce..The stalls selling these fritters are mostly owned by Indians in Myanmar ... The vendor makes a cone out of an old newspaper, throws in a dozen fritters, and the customer walks off happily eating them. These fritters are a delicious crunchy snack or accompaniment to a meal..

Burmese fritters

1cup Yellow split peas or channa dal (soaked overnight)
1no Onion (chopped finely)
1/4cup Coriander leaves (chopped finely)
1no Red chilli (chopped finely)
1/4tsp Paprika
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
Salt
Oil for deepfrying..

Drain the peas and grind half of the yellow split peas as bit coarse paste, while grind the remaining peas as smooth paste by adding a little water, mix the two grounded paste together, add the chopped onions, chilli, coriander leaves, spices and salt..mix everything well..

Heat the oil for deep frying, scoop a teaspoon of the mixture and with an another spoon form a oval shape bite sized batter, gently drop this one by one to the hot oil..Deep fry in batches on medium flame until they turn golden brown..remove the fritters, drain the excess of oil with a paper towel..
