1 cup dried yellow split peas, soaked in water for 24 hours and rinsed
1 small red onion, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 tsp tumeric, paprika, and cayenne pepper
1 tsp salt
oil for frying
1. Add 1/2 cup of soaked peas to a food processor or blender and blend into a course chop. Set chopped peas to the side.
2. Add rest of the peas, onion, garlic, and spices to the food processor and blend into a paste. You may need a few tbsp of water to get it moving.
3. Mix in course peas to the paste.
4. Form into fritters and fry. I did a shallow fry.
I served these on a bed of rocket and carrot shavings with some lemon juice. David enjoyed these but I wanted something more out of them. I probably won’t make them again. I don’t think I am a yellow split pea fan.
This is not really a recipe just more of a different way to serve this frozen treat. Falooda is a milkshake that is served with different elements in it. I would say that it is the first DQ Blizzard of the Asian variety. In Sri Lanka, falooda is served with jelly like balls (boba pearls) and/or noodles. Rose is a popular flavor. In other South Asia countries they serve them with seeds like basil seeds.
