Traditionally kelewele is ripe plantain diced and spiced with chilli and ginger and then fried. I prefer mine oven baked as it’s less oily.
I also enjoy spicing it to suit whatever I’m eating it with.
Cinnamon and nutmeg kelewele with ice-cream…. you’ve got to try it!!
For even more plantain treats check out my book A Date with Plantain.
It’s so versatile. Savoury versions go well with curries and roasted meats whilst sweet versions add something special to a dessert. Or simply enjoy on its own as a snack.
