    AmandaInOz's Note:

    Nigerian Bean Cakes. This is a recipe from my husband's step mum who lived in Nigeria for 15 years. Cooking time does not include soaking. The koose will expand a little during frying. Start with small scoops and adjust if necessary. The batter will be thin.

      Absolutley 100% authentic - I lived in Africa when I was little, and I remember a friend of my mum making something like these - I LOVED them then, as I do now! As my mum is a vegetarian, I made these one night for her, whilst the rest of us chomped away on steak and chicken!! However, she had to fight us meat eaters off them - a great recipe and VERY tasty - we loved the heat, but added some salt and pepper, and then the seasoning was just right! No photos - as I see you have one of Engrossed's famous photos.......I did not like to take over!! Made for ZWT4 - a keeper for us! Merci! FT:-)

      Different! I made this recipe for the Photo recipe tag game. I was intrigued by using soaked but uncooked black-eyed peas. Unfortunately it wasn't thick enough to drop in the oil without breaking apart so I had to add quite a bit of garbanzo bean flour. They turned out a plain in flavor with an interesting texture from the uncooked black-eyed peas. They were better with Thai chili sauce. Thanks for the adventure! *I ran into several recipes just like this in some African cookbooks and they basically say to do the same thing, although some say to let it sit a couple of hours after pureeing. They also use the same ingredients and uncooked soaked beans. I'm thinking using an electric mixer might fluff it up more? I used a hand whisk and must not have the whisking talent. I would like to see someone make them right.
