Recipe of Acaraje

Black eyed peas deep fried dough

 

INGREDIENTS:

 

2 cups of black-eyed peas; soaked overnight

1 cup water

2 cloves of garlic

11/2 tablespoon ground pepper

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

PREPARE:

 

Rub the peel off the beans against a dishtowel.

Combine all ingredients in a blender. Beat for about 4 minutes or until you get a dough.

Pour the mixture in a mixing bowl.

Heat the oil to 350░F and deep-fry spoonfuls of dough for 8 minutes or until dark red. Pat them dry in paper towel.

Stir the mixture left in the bowl frequently to avoid watery stuff.

 

Hint: to make the traditional acaraje, you have to combine the deep fryer oil with 3 tablespoons of palm oil. But remember: this oil mixture cannot be used to fry other dishes because of the palm oil strong taste.

 

 

SERVE:

 
Street vendors in Bahia (northeastern Brazil) split the acaraje and fill them with vatapa.

SERVING SIZE: about 10 fried dough.
