In a small bowl, mash the
garlic to a paste with a pestle or the back of a large spoon.
Add the peas and ½ cup of water and mash vigorously to a smooth puree.
Or: (mash the garlic with the pestle or large spoon, then force the garlic,
water and peas through a fine sieve or a food mill set over a bowl.)
With a large spoon, beat in
the lemon juice a few tablespoons at a time.
Beating constantly, pour in the taratoor in a slow thin stream and
continue to beat until the mixture is smooth.
