Black-eyed Peas Fritters/Karamani Pakoda

Black eyed peas is becoming one of my favourite ingredient after Urad dal for making fritters or vadas. After trying my hands with black eyed peas vadas, i couldnt stop myself frying out some pakodas with them.They came out extremely super crispy and prefect to munch with some tea for snacks. However these cute crispy balls was a big hit among my kids, obviously they enjoyed munching them with their favourite sauce while i had this pakodas as side dish for some hot piping rasam rice. Yes you can even serve these cuties as side dish for your rice dish. As much as like usual gram flour based pakodas, these fritters came out extremely crispy, but all you need is to soak and peel the skin of black-eyed peas.

Though peeling the skin of black eyed peas may be time consuming, its definitely worth to give a try to this ultimate fritters. Am running this week's blogging marathon with Kid's delight - Bite sized appetiziers , as this bite sized pakodas suits prefectly for the theme, am posting today. I simply spiced this fritters with green chillies along with loads of onions. But trust me you can add any sort of grated vegetables to the black-eyed peas batter to make these fritters more healthy and colourful. Give a try and do let me know.

My mouth is watering looking at those plateful of pakodas. My hubby's aunt would prepare these for us whenever we were invited to her place for a meal. She would peel each bean!
