Black Bean Cakes
3 cups dry black beans 1 tablespoon ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon chili powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 1/2 cup plain yogurt 1 tablespoon milk 1 pinch cayenne pepper
Procedures : Place black beans in a large pot with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 1 hour, or until tender. In an electric blender or food processor, process black beans until smooth. Stir in cumin, chili powder, salt, and cilantro; blend. Roll the mixture into balls, allowing 3 tablespoons of mixture per ball. Place balls between sheets of wax paper and press down on the wax paper to form 1/8 inch thick rounds. Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet. Fry the cakes 2 or 3 minutes per side. In a bowl, combine yogurt, milk, and cayenne pepper (to taste). Serve the sauce over the hot black bean cakes"
