Chop the bacon and saute it until crispy. Drain excess oil.
Add coconut milk, peas, salt and 2 cups water and bring to a boil.
In a bowl, combine cornmeal with about 1 cup of the boiling liquid and mix to form a paste.
Turn heat to low and slowly add cornmeal paste, stirring constantly, to avoid lumps. Simmer, stirring constantly, for 10 minutes.
