Split Pigeon Peas Balls

1 cup of split pigeon peas
1 cup of sugar (more or less)
Baker’s chocolate
Cardamom powder
Few strands of saffron

1. Soak the peas for a few hours
2. Cook the peas in a pressure cooker (about 4-5 whistles) with water (maybe a 1 ½ cup?)
3. Once the peas are cooked, blend them. They should have a mashed potato consistency. Transfer in a microwave safe bowl.
4. Add ½ cup sugar to the mixture. Taste it and see if it is sweet enough. The beauty of this is you can make it as sweet as you want it. So if necessary add more sugar.
5. Cook in the microwave for 15 minutes. Remove and stir. You should stir every 3 minutes
6. If the mixture is coming together. Then add some cardamom powder and the saffron strands. Let it cool.
7. Once the mixture has cooled down. You can roll them into ball.
8. Melt the bakers chocolate, dip the balls into the chocolate and put them on a plate.
9. Refrigerate the balls for about 20 minutes.
10. Enjoy!
