African, Ghanian, Plantain, recommended


Hi guys. How are you all doing? This has been on my to do list for a while now and I am finally glad I did it. Lol. Considering the fact that I always have plantain at home. Better late than never I guess. Hehehe

Kelewe is a Ghanian dish. First time I heard of it was from a friend of mine and I asked her what she meant. She explained that it was plantain seasoned with spices and then fried.

I am someone who loves plantain and I have always added onion granules to it to make it more tasty. So I was all up for this.

Ok let’s get started shall we ๐Ÿ™‚

Cayenne pepper
Onion powder (optional )
Ginger powder or fresh Ginger
Chilli powder (optional )

Frying pan

Prep time : 30 minutes – 1 hour (allowing the seasoning to penetrate)

Method :
Cut the plantain Into cubes or stripes

Season with the remaining ingredients


Rub it in together and allow it to penetrate for at least 30 minutes – 1 hour.

After 1 hour fry in hot oil. Don’t over power the plantation with oil. Less is more


Fry until nicely browned or however dark you want it. Can you smell that Aroma! ๐Ÿ™‚

There you have it. I think Kelewele is gonna be the way forward for me. Absolutely love it 👏




That’s it from me today, I’ll see you all in my next post

Love Duchess O
