Kelewele Recipe (Ghana – Spicy Fried Plantains) By Zeelicious Foods

Kelewele (pronounced Kay-lay-way-lay) is a popular Ghanaian dish made with fried plantains seasoned with spices. It is often served with rice and bean stew or alone as a vegetarian dessert or snack. In Ghana, you can find the street vendors ready to hand over this amazing West African treat.

Kelewele is commonly sold as a street food but is very simple to make at home. When cooked at home, it’s often a side dish to a main entrée like barbecued meats, stews, or even can be eaten as dessert. Plantains are cut into chunks, slices, or cubes, covered with spices and fried to a caramelized brown.
