Q&A #3: In Search of Kachourie


Reader’s Question:

Hi! I happened upon your blog because I was looking for a Trini recipe. Maybe you can help me. I had a dish that had pureed yellow split peas, cilantro, sliced onions, a little garlic, and some jalapeno pepper. The puree was then rolled into rough balls and fried. It was amazing. Do you recognize the item or know a recipe?

TriniGourmet’s Answer:

I believe that the reader was inquiring after the dish known as Trinidad Kachourie. I sent them a recipe and you can view my own attempt at this Indo-Trinidadian food item here.
