This is my favorite snack and if you have ever been to Ghana in Africa or have a Ghanaian friend you will be surely familiar with this recipe.
And I’m sure that my Colombian, Venezuelan and Mexican friends will particularly like this recipe. As you are already familiar with fried plantain and or spicy food 😉
Kelewele is essentially fried plantains seasoned in a variety of species. You can eat it as a snack and or alongside your stew.
The great thing is that it is super easy to make and super yummy.
So here we go!
- 6 Ripe Plantains
- 1/2 piece Raw Ginger
- 1/2 Onion
- 2 cloves Garlic
- 1 tsp Nutmeg
- 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
- 1 tsp Salt
- Coconut oil for frying
Using a sharp knife, cut a shallow line down the length of the plantain and simply peel back the skin.
Chop the plantain into small diagonal cubes of about 1 inch size.
Rasp the ginger into a large bowl then add in chopped garlic and onions.
Then blend in a bit of cayenne pepper, nutmeg and salt. Mix it well.
Next add in your plantain cubes and coat in the spicy mix.
Leave it for about 15-30 minutes.
