This is the Nigerian version of the Colombian pasabocas-de-platanos, basically it is rice rolled in fried plantains. Like the Colombian version it can be eaten as a snack if you have just one portion or as a main.

Ingredients

  • 4 Ripe Plantains
  • 3 sausages
  • Nigerian Jollof rice or Turmeric rice
  • 3 cups of oil for frying

Direction

  • Peel and cut Plantains in slices lengthwise of 5 millimeters thickness.
  • Heat about 3 cups of oil in a saucepan over medium heat.
  • Add the plantains one by one and fry them in oil for few minutes until golden. Fry both sides.
  • When Plantains are done transfer on paper towels to drain
  • While still warm mold them in a ring and secure with a toothpick to keep them in one piece.
  • Then fill them with Jollof rice, using a spoon.
  • You can top with slices of sausage or tomatoes.
  • Serve with a side of salad.
