2) Peel and grind the roasted groundnut in a mill


3) Peel plantain and cut into small cubes then mash with spoon or hand.


4) Add in the groundnut, pepper and ginger. Mix together.


5) In a frying pan, heat oil and scoop the plantain in balls. Fry till golden brown.


6) When golden brown, put on kitchen towel to drain excess oil.

The aroma is amazing, the taste is superb and best of all it is easy peasy to make!

K's dodoFor a healthier Version, grill in oven instead of frying. That’s Boli and Epa gone la creme!



To grill, mold into balls, place in oven and grill till golden brown. This version is best for fitfam

I used well ripened plantain but not over ripe.

You can store ground groundnut in a tight contain for use another time
