These are really delicious, especially when served with sour cream or the homemade sauce included in this recipe! They are great for Chinese New Year.

Directions

  1. Place black beans in a large pot with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 1 hour, or until tender.
  2. In an electric blender or food processor, process black beans until smooth. Stir in cumin, chili powder, salt, and cilantro; blend. Roll the mixture into balls, allowing 3 tablespoons of mixture per ball.
  3. Place balls between sheets of wax paper and press down on the wax paper to form 1/8 inch thick rounds.
  4. Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet. Fry the cakes 2 or 3 minutes per side.
  5. In a bowl, combine yogurt, milk, and cayenne pepper (to taste). Serve the sauce over the hot black bean cakes.
  6. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Hello All: I added one large egg and 3/4 cup of cornmeal. It made it easier to control the patties. I put them on a cookie sheet using parchment paper, then I sprayed a little pam on each pattie. I baked them on 350 for about 30 minutes they came out wonderful and I cut the fat.

This is delicious. I used canned black beans and needed to add some bread crumbs in order to roll into balls. I put them in a tortilla with some tomato and sour cream and had as a main dish.

These were good. For those of you whose cakes fell apart, your oil probably wasn't hot enough. Tip: when you think the oil is heated in the skillet, toss in a pinch of flour, if it sizzles, then it's ready.
