Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

1 Pound(s) Dried black eyed beans
1 Onion, roughly chopped
1 Maleguata chili pepper, or
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Tabasco pepper sauce
Salt and freshly ground
Oil for deep frying
20 Dried shrimp
Soak the beans overnight in cold water, changing the water once. Rub
the beans between the palms of your hands to free the outer skins,
which should float to the surface. Scoop off the skins and discard.
Drain the beans. Puree the beans and onion in a food processor. Season
with salt and pepper and chili. Using 2 soup spoons, form the bean
mixture into small egg shapes. Press a dried shrimp into the center of
each one, and press the bean mixture round to secure it. The shrimp
should still stand proud. Heat the oil to 350 degrees and fry the
fritters in small batches until golden brown all over. Remove with a
slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Keep warm in a low oven until
they are all fried. Dried shrimp-these can be bought in Asian markets
