Black Eyed Pea Patties with Chili Sauce

This is Tried and Tasted Recipe from Lisa's blog.I have known Lisa through here Soup event and always admired all the recipes.I wanted to try something other than soups from Lisa.I have never worked with bean in patties and was interested in these especially when they were under the label African.These are served with Pilipili or sauce made with red bellpepper and chillies.Lisa adapted these from World Vegetarian Classic by Celia Brown.I have modified Lisa's recipe as I halved it and made it eggless.Here it is mostly in Lisa's own words.


Black Eyes Peas: 1/2 cup presoaked and cooked
Onion: 1 small, finely chopped
Fresh green chilies:1-2, finely chopped
Sea salt: 1-2 tsp as per taste
All Purpose Flour: 1/4 cup(reduce to half if using eggs ie 2 tbsp APF and 1 egg)
Baking Powder: 1 tsp
Warm Water: 1 tbsp+

Oil for frying

PiliPili Sauce:
Red Bell Peppers:2 seeded and quartered
Green Chillies: 1-2 roughly chopped
Sea salt: a pinch
Garlic: 1 clove
Lemon juice: 1 small lemon

Soak the beans in water overnight and clean and cook in a pressurecooker.You can also cook in a pot and this will take around 40 minutes. Drain and transfer to a food processor. Blend to obtain a thick paste.Add chopped green chillies,onion,baking powder and little flour and little warm water to obtain a thicker paste.If eggs are ok,you can reduce the flour to half and add eggs. Else you can also use anyother egg replacer of choice.

In a large non-stick pan, heat a shallow pool of oil over medium heat. When hot, drop in heaped tablespoons of the batter and fry until golden on each side.

To make the chili sauce, put the peppers in a pot of boiling water and cook until they are soft 8-10 minutes. Drain and transfer to a food processor, along with the chillies, salt, garlic and lemon juice. Process until well combined. Serve with the bean patties.

I loved the patties though I must say the pic has not come closer to the original.The combo of red pepper sauce and black eyed patties was new to me and I enjoyed it Thanks to Lisa.

Obviously a warm plate of patties with pilipili is on way to Aparna of MyDiverseKitchen for Tried &Tasted:Lisa's Vegetarian Kitchen , an event by Zlamushka of SpicyKitchen.

Another plate of these excellent starters is on way to MLLA: Tenth Helping :Starters & Desserts an even by Susan the well seasoned cook and currently hosted by Glamah-rous Coco Cooks

Black-eyed pea fritters sound delicious. I have tried the black-eyed pea fritters out of the cookbook Vegan Soul Kitchen and they're amazing. I can imagine how wonderful these must've tasted.
