  1. Sift the split pea flour, self-rising flour, and baking powder into a large bowl. Stir in turmeric, cumin, and salt. Gradually stir in enough water to make a very thick batter. Stir in onion, garlic, and green onion.
  2. Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is very hot, drop tablespoonfuls of the batter into the pan, and fry until golden brown on both sides. Remove to paper towels to drain.

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 ...

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 t...

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...

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 packag...

I used different seasonings so I can't comment on flavour but I'm commenting on texture instead. This recipe has too much dhaal (split pea flour) for my tastes and the second time I made it I ad...

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 pac...
