This recipe is for plantain/pancake lovers. I named it Plantain bite as it was an adaptation from the Ghanaian tatale and the jewish latkes. This quick and easy recipe can be served as breakfast, brunch or as a snack.
Nigerians are partial to plantain, while some might be to eat plantain dish as main, it is a snack to others. When it comes to plantain, calories are irrelevant. Right, I am joking now, please as much as this recipe is sweet and delicious, I preach moderation. Plantain is a good source of fibre, vitamins and other minerals. The calories can be compared to that of potato but plantain is more nutritious.
1 ripe plantain
½ tsp chilli flakes
1 small onion
4tbsp Vegetable oil
1 heap full tbsp flour
How to make plantain bites
Grate or mash plantain and onion then set aside
Break the egg in a bowl; add seasoning, salt and whisk till well combined
Add flour to the whisked egg and combine well.
Add grated plantain to the egg mixture and combine well
Place a frying pan on medium heat, add 2-4tbsp of oil and allow to heat for about 2 minutes. Scoop plantain mix in bit to the hot oil and fry on both sides for about 2-3 minutes or until golden brown and well cooked through.
See it is that simple and yummy too.
Take it off the heat and allow to cool. Serve as a side, breakfast or brunch. It works all ways. I served mine with mayonnaise-dip, mixed with herbs. Any other dip would do just fine. Enjoy
