The plantain mosa is a traditional food at Nigerian celebrations, from birthdays to funerals, thanks to its first-class degree in flavor.
Unbeknownst to the general public, this delectable treat is not reserved solely for special occasions. It takes less than 30 minutes to whip up this snack masterpiece in the privacy of your own home while you’re watching your favorite movie.
- Slice your plantain and put the pieces along with diced pepper into a blender. Add a little bit of water and yeast before blending.
- Once the mixture looks smooth, pour your flour and salt, and blend again.
- Ensure the texture is smooth and isn’t too thick. Pour the batter into a bowl and cover it, allowing the mixture to rise for about 15-20 minutes.
- While the batter rises, allow your frying pan to heat up then add vegetable oil.
- Noticing the oil is hot, scoop a mixture with a spoon, and pour it into the frying pan. If you don’t feel like a spoon might not give the desired shape, you could use your hands.
- Fry until the mosa turns golden brown.
- Once the batter has finished, drain the oil from the fried mosa.
- Volia! Your snack is ready
