Semolina Pancake with coconut milk and caramelised banana

Whilst growing up, I remember my mum making pancakes for us with corn flour. Truth be told, it is one of the best pancakes I have ever eaten. It has a taste I canโ€™t really describe but it is divine.

Recently, I was looking for what to cook for breakfast and pancake came to mind. I thought of the closest thing to corn flour and I decided to use semolina powder. They are quite similar if you ask me.

How To Make Akara

I recently made a post on how to peel soaked beans by using a blender. I made some akara and even preserved some left over peeled beans for later in the freezer. Akara is a very popular meal and street food in Nigeria. In fact akara is readily available almost everywhere you turn to, it is also served on special occasions too.

How to peel beans with a blender or food processor

I have heard about how you can peel beans using a blender or food processor, I never really paid any attention to it as I am very comfortable using my hands to peel. I made akara recently and I thought now would be a good time to try it. I tell you, I had my doubts and I kept saying to myself, if it doesnโ€™t turn out right, I would just use it like that.
