  1. Measure beans into a bowl and add water to cover beans by one inch.
  2. Allow beans to soak for up to 2minutes, drain off water and peel the beans. This first soaking is to soften just the shaft and not the beans thus to avoid the crumbling of the beans.
  3. Rinse off the beans shafts and soak again in water for as long as 10minutes. This is to soften the beans for easy blending.
  4. Drain the beans, rinse pepper and onion and slice onions into the beans. Then, blend till you get a smooth bean paste
  5. Add water while blending but be careful not to add too much. Else, it becomes watery and not the bean paste you want.
  6. After blending, pour paste into clean mixing bowl of a mixer and mix at a medium speed for 6minutes.
  7. While mixing, pour oil (vegetable oil or palm oil) in a deep fryer and set on cooker to heat up.
  8. After mixing, into a bowl, scoop as much bean paste as can be fried in the oil at once. Add salt to taste and mix well with a spoon.
  9. Scoop into hot oil and fry till golden brown. This shouldn’t take more than 1minute or 2minutes for each side if the oil is well heated.
