Mosa

Mosa - Adùn

Written by: Tobi

Have you ever purchased a ton of plantains, some of which went “bad”? Your days of throwing out Overripe plantains are over. 

This Mosa recipe is one of the most popular recipes in Africa - yes, Africa. Plantains are such a widely grown and used crop in Africa - there are so many variations to this recipe, and almost every country has a version or a different name. In Ghana, it is called kakro, Jamaicans call it Plantain Fritters.

Plantains can easily be described as one of the best gifts from Mother nature because plantains are used for so many different things across their life span - from unripe to overripe even when you think it's “spoilt,” it can come in handy for Mosa. 

Ingredients

  • Frying Oil
  • 2 tsp of Salt
  • 1.5 Cups of Flour
  • ½ Chopped Onion
  • 2 tsp of Rodo Crisps
  • 3 Overripe Plantains
  • 2 tsp of Baking Powder

Okay, what is Mosa? Mosa is a snack made from overripe plantains mixed with peppers, onions, and flour (for some body) and fried in oil. Some recipes opt for yeast, while others (like this one) use just baking powder as a rising agent.

Mosa can be enjoyed in many ways - by itself, with stew, or even with palm oil, and it is super versatile. A video of this recipe can be seen on Youtube here and Instagram here. Mosa Ingredients - Adùn
