Serves: 30 pieces
Adapted from: eatingnigerian


250 grams Brown Beans or Black Eye Peas
1 Medium Onions (Weighing approx. 150 grams)
200 mls water for blending
¾ tsp Salt
¼ tsp Dry Pepper
2 Egg yolks
3 Egg Whites
Olive Oil for deep frying


Wash beans, place in a medium sauce pan with about one liter of water and bring to a boil. Boil two more minutes and take off the heat. Allow to soak for about one hour then wash the beans rigorously this time to peel the beans, using a sieve to strain the beans peel as you wash and until all the beans have been peeled, strained and clean.
Place the beans, onions and about 200 mls of water in a blender or goblet of a food processor and puree until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and mix in salt, pepper and egg yolks.
Place oil for deep frying in a pan on medium heat or turn on a deep fryer. Using a hand whisk or balloon whisk, beat egg whites until stiff. Do not over beat. Carefully fold in egg whites into beans mixture. Using a tablespoon, drop mixture into hot oil and deep fry until golden brown of each side. Place on kitchen paper to drain as much oil as possible and serve.
