Soak the peas overnight. Drain, cover with fresh water, bring to a boil, and simmer until soft (about 2 hours). Drain. Add the peas, garlic, cumin, and salt to a food processor. Sauté the onion and pepper in the oil until just soft. Add to the pea mixture. Roll into balls about the size of Ping-Pong balls. Deep fry at 350 degrees until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm.
