Variations of these flavourful little fritters, called Phulourie, are found all over the Caribbean. They are quick to whip up and best eaten hot and fresh. Serve with Mango Sauce (see recipe link below).

In bowl, whisk together ground peas, baking powder, cumin, salt and pepper. Whisk in 3/4 cup (175 mL) water and hot pepper sauce; beat for 1 minute to make thick batter.

Into wok or Dutch oven, pour enough oil to come about 2 inches (5 cm) up side. Heat until 375°F (190°C) on deep-fry thermometer, or until 1-inch (2.5 cm) cube of white bread turns golden in 30 seconds.

Drop batter, by heaping 1 tbsp (15 mL), into hot oil; deep-fry, turning once, until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain on paper towel–lined tray.

Serve with Mango Sauce
