These tatale are just so delicious and is going to be a go-to snack for me, whenever I have some ripe plantains I need to use up.
2 very ripe plantains, peeled
2 chiles, finely chopped
2 scallions, chopped (original recipe used onions, but I didn't have any, so I substituted)
salt, to taste
1/2 cup self-rising flour.
1 teaspoon olive oil (original recipe used palm oil, but I didn't have any)
Vegetable or Canola Oil, for frying
Ghanians really know how to utilize sweet plantains in delicious ways. This and Kelewele are two delicious ways to utilize ripe plantain in savory snacks.
In a bowl, mash plantains. Add chiles, scallions, egg and oil. Stir to combine.
Add flour and salt. Stir to combine.
Fry a few minutes on each side, until golden brown.
Perfect for appetizers at a dinner party, this recipe is also a unique after school snack for kids, that will appease their desire for sugar, with the natural sweetness of the plantain. These are very mild, however, if your child does not like any kind of spice, simply omit the chiles. Tested on my friend's kids, I think yours will love them too!
I have recently really been utilizing my cookbook collection..yeah...finally getting their money's worth!
