Kelewele (Spicy Diced Plantains)
Updated: Apr 7
Kelewele (Kay-lay-way-lay) is street snack which originates from Ghana, West Africa. It is spicy and semi-crunchy on the outside, and sweet and semi-soft on the inside. Authentically, it is deep fried until golden grown, but with the advent of the airfryer, some have evolved to using it to achieve that same effect.
1 yellow ripened plantain
1 teaspoon POKS Spices Mild Jalapeño-Based Seasoning
1 teaspoon water
Neutral Flavored Oil for frying (Canola or Vegetable Oil)
Peel and dice the plantain.
Sprinkle on the seasoning and water, and rub gentle over the plantains until thoroughly coated.
Heat up the oil on medium heat and add in the seasoned plantain.
Fry until it is golden brown and scoop unto paper towel to blot the excess oil from frying.
