Fried plantain, called dodo in Nigeria and kele wele in Ghana, is made with ripe plantain sliced and deep fried in vegetable oil. Fried plantain is one of the easiest and fastest foods to prepare. A perfect fried plantain is crispy outside and fluffy inside.

How to Make Fried Plantain:

  1. Wash and cut off the top and bottom of the plantains. Make a shallow cut on the side and peel off the skin from that point.
  2. Slice the peeled plantains to your desired shapes into a bowl, diagonal, round, cubes, circle stripes, flat shapes, or bayonet/stripes. You can use a cookie cutter or any cutter to make your own design.
  3. Sprinkle some salt on the plantains and toss them to make sure the salt is evenly distributed.
  4. Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan on a high-medium heat. You can test the temperature by putting in a piece of the sliced plantain; if it is hot enough, the oil will sizzle.
  5. Carefully add the plantain slices to the oil in a single layer. Do not overcrowd the pan or the temperature of the oil will drop and make the plantains to soak up the oil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and fry until both sides are golden brown. It is best to fry them in batches.
  6. Once the plantain slices are perfectly fried, transfer them into a sieve lined with paper towel to absorb the excess oil.
