between the palms of your hands to remove the skins.Return the beans to the bowl, top up with water and the skins will float to the surface. Dis card the skins and soak the beans again for 2 hours.Place the beans in a blender or food processor with the onion, chilli and a little water.  Blend to make a thick paste. Pour the mixture into a large bowl and whisk for few minutes.Heat the oil in a large heavy saucepan and fry spoonfuls of the mixture for 4 minutes until golden brown. Serve hot .
