They are sold at some Asian grocery stores, but with a few basic ingredients, you can make them on your own.

Preheat your oven to 177 degrees Celsius. Spray your baking tray with a fine mist of cooking spray.
Measure two cups of green peas. Make sure they are not moist. If necessary, dry them between two paper towels to remove excess moisture.
Pour peas into a mixing bowl. Add oil. Stir until peas are coated with oil.
Add in all the other ingredients. Toss the peas in the ingredients by shifting them back and fourth in the bowl. The peas should be evenly coated in the spices.
Spread the peas out on the baking tray in a even, single layer coat. Put the baking tray in the oven.
Allow the peas to bake for one hour. Remove them from the oven and use the spoon to turn them. Put them back in the oven for 30 minutes or until they are a brown colour.
Peas should be cooled completely before you eat or store them. Store in a sealed container. Do not refrigerate.
