HOW TO MAKE AKARA

Ingredients

  • 1 cup peeled beans
  • 1 raw hot pepper (Ata rodo) – chopped

  • oil for frying

 

Directions

  1. Combine the beans with 1/4 cup water in a blender.

  3. Pour the pureed beans into a bowl. Mix for 5 minutes with a whisk or mixer. This is to incorporate air into the batter.
  4. Set a deep pan on medium heat, add in some oil. Heat until oil
  5. Add in the salt, baking soda, chopped pepper and onions. Stir
  6. Scoop 1/2 cooking spoon of batter into oil. You do not want to spread out the batter in the oil, you want to pour batter directly on itself (the way you would pour water into a narrow bottle).
  7. Fry on each side until golden brown .
  8. Lift the akara balls out with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper towels.
  9. Repeat the process until everything is fried
  10. Serve with bread, garri, ogi(pap) or fried yam. Enjoy!
