Yet another weird Asian snack food. These are Japanese in origin; they're ordinary green peas which have been coated in a batter containing potent quantities of wasabi (or a cheap Western substitute such as mustard), then cooked. They are quite tasty, and quite hot as well.

The container of wasabi green peas (or rather, as noted above, actually mustard green peas) I recently purchased at Stop & Shop contains a good number of yellow peas as well. I suppose this means the manufacturer gets supplies from the Gregor Mendel Pea Laboratory.
