Bean Balls
Akara
Category Bean

This cuisine, popularly called akara, is known to be a common snack in Nigeria. It is commonly used as an accompaniment with Ogi (pap).

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

  • Ground beans (soaked overnight so the outer covering comes off easily)
  • Ground pepper
  • Onion, chopped thinly or ground
  • Salt

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Remove the skins from the soaked beans.
  2. Grind the beans to a fine fluffy paste.
  3. Add ground pepper, onion, and salt to the paste, and mix well.
  4. Put oil into a large frying pan and heat it. Use a serving spoon to scoop the paste into hot oil, and fry until golden brown.
  5. Serve hot with corn pap or bread.
