I tried this twice, thinking I had something wrong the first time. Both were a total disaster. The pea mixture sunk to the bottom and I was left with a little bit of deep fried flour. My Key West born and raised husband was very disappointed.

Hi Diana, sorry to hear that you failed twice. I have to make this recipe, and to see what will happen. Will let you know my result!

Try removing the pea skins after the overnight soak. Combine peas and 8 cloves of garlic and 1/2 an onion. Process until smooth. Add 2 eggs and 1/2 tsp, of baking powder. Fry in a shallow pan with 2 cups of oil. Use 2 teaspoons to make drop bollos. Fry until golden brown. Drain in paper towels and salt to taste.
