Food

  • Small croquettes made with minced meat and soaked yellow split peas (4:1), cooked in water with flavourings such as garlic, coriander, cumin, mint, ginger, minced onion or the like until soft and all liquid absorbed. The mixture is then processed to a smooth paste, formed into small flat circular croquettes and fried in clarified butter on both sides, taking care not to break them.
