oh, I've had dhal and that I do like.  Peas don't have quite the same attraction for me though.

my gran didnt make mushy peas properly....but i always hate them but! what you can do (as they do in my local chippy)
get the paste pat them into cake shapes and fry them , pea fritter! mm mm!
i like fritter anything though, you can also mis the peas into mashed potato and mix with left overs (usually from sunday roasts) like cabbage, sprouts, onions etc and fry that you get bubble n squeak (sooo good)

It sounds similar to dhal, an Indian dish of lentils that are soaked it water and then cooked beyond recognition. It's delicious.

I love dhal. I went to India a decade ago and suffered from eating dhal twice a day for a week. It wasn't pretty. But I still love dhal!

Mushy peas are an acquired taste, however there is nothing quite like mushy peas & gravy on chips x

Ps) I'd go for mushy peas from a tin / chippy all the way.  Homemade ones just are not the same  Smiley


I have lots of train tickets (I get the train most days), if anyone wants some for papercrafting just send me a PM Smiley

I agree with whoever said to add a bit of sugar,that's the first thing that came to my mind when I saw this.I does make a difference.
I like mushy peas,they go nice with roast potatoes!

here's another idea -- do you live in a town or near a town that has a British shop? Many have tinned foods and candies that aren't available in regular American stores.  Maybe they have the canned kind so you won't have to make them... (the shops are also usually run by Brits, so they may have some cooking advice if you still want to try your hand at it.)
--I've lived in three different cities that have great British shops, i love to go for the teas, Rowntree's fruit gums and other candies. And the shop owners have always been especially gracious.
Good luck!
