Vegan Black-eyed Peas Fritters

If you would have went through my earlier post, you might have noticed that this week's blogging marathon is going to be Black-eyed peas based dishes. Yes am running this month's Mega marathon with 5ingredients for 5 weeks as theme under 'Cooking carnival',and i picked dry beans as my ingredients for 5 weeks.Every week, i will be showcasing a dry bean, after posting three different dishes with dry green peas, this week's posts are dishes with Black-eyed peas. My today's post is a deep fried beauties with black eyed peas as star ingredient. As almost like Akara - Nigerian's Black-eyed peas fritters which calls for grinding the soaked and deskinned black-eyed peas, these fritters are very easy to dish out. An excellent evening snacks to enjoy with a spicy sauce or else simply with ketchup. Coming to this fritters, its quite a cross between our Indian pakodas and hush puppies.

These fritters came out extremely crispy on the outside with a chewy inside. Cooked black-eyed peas when grinded with onions, garlic, bread crumbs spiced with salt,pepper powder, red chilly flakes and dijon mustard makes this fantastic fritters.  Actually while googling, i saw couple of black-eyed peas fritters however i combined few of those recipes to dish out my own version of black-eyed peas fritters. Though some of the black-eyed peas fritters went for an egg, i just skipped it and prepared this fritters as vegan version.These fritters are dangerously addictive, dont forget to make a huge batch else you will definitely regret later.
