Koose (Spicy Bean Cakes from Ghana) by The Spruce Eats

Koose (kosai, akara, akla) is made from ground cow peas or black eyed peas. They can be made with ground cow pea flour or by grinding whole black eyed peas. I had avoided making koose for a while because I knew that the process, at least the very first time I made it, would involve de-hulling each and every bean by hand. Ouch! Needless to say, since trying it out, I discovered a much easier method for de-hulling black eyed peas for making Koose.
