1 Rinse the split peas and boil them until they are soft.
Grate them coarsely in your blender and mix them with
the minced meat. Grate the onion into the mixture.
2 Break the eggs into a bowl and add cinnamon, baking soda,
flour, saffron, salt and pepper, and mix thoroughly.
3 Heat a generous amount of cooking oil in a saucepan. Then take
portions of the minced meat mixture with a spoon and shape the dough into doughnuts. Keep your hands moist. This will make your work easier. Deep-fry the shami pook in the oil and place them on a platter.
