Here come the recipes

Baya Kayaw/Burmese Yellow Split Pea Fritters From Priya of Priyaeasyntastyrecipes.

According to Priya these fritters are quite an appetizier for a party menu or else for an evening snack. These fritters are quite easy to make and very popular in Burma. Whoever like deep fried beauties can give a trial to the splendid fritters and tastes fabulously awesome with hot chili sauce. The stalls selling these fritters are mostly owned by Indians in Myanmar … The vendor makes a cone out of an old newspaper, throws in a dozen fritters, and the customer walks off happily eating them.
