Directions

Soak overnight in ample water:

  • 1/2 lb. boonchi wowo pretu, or black-eyed peas
  • 1 tsp. salt

Place the peas in the folds of a towel and rub vigorously to remove skins. Discard the skin and dry the peas thoroughly. Put them through a food grinder.

Beat in:

  • 1 tsp. salt

While beating, add a little at a time:

  • 1/2 cup water

Continue beating until batter is fluffy and double the original quantity. Drop by teaspoonfuls into deep, hot fat. Remove when golden brown and drain on absorbent paper. Serve piping hot.
