1.AKARA (BEAN CAKE):
This is simply the deep fried bean cakes. It is awesome. This delicious protein-packed fritters are light, making it ideal for breakfast as a side with pap (ogi), or throughout the day as a snack. Most people use peeled brown beans, ground and blended with onions and spices, and fry in vegetable oil. It tastes amazing when eaten with Agege bread.
It’s a great dish made of peeled Nigerian beans ground together with onions, bell pepper, palm oil and spices, and steamed in banana leaves or other vessels. You can add any combination of extra bits to it: flaked fish, slices of hard boiled eggs, ground beef, as it’s literally up to you. It’s delicious and nutty, and is great as a side try it with any rice dish or part of a main dish with, for example, soaked garri (fermented cassava).
This is a deep fried plantain, cut in slim diagonal slices, circles or cubes and deep-fried. Some people like to sprinkle some salt on before frying, but that’s down to personal taste. It’s a snack, a side dish, a main meal, a blessing. It’s great because it tastes like a mother’s love. It’s impossible to cook it badly. It’s both a whole meal and a side dish. It is the best thing.
This is basically deep fried, light-as-air sweet dough balls, served alone or with sugar sprinkled it. It’s awesome as it’s the perfect party food. There are so many recipes out there. Try this one with a coconut twist.
