Homemade shawarma bread

Prep Time: 15 mins.
Cook Time: 10 mins.
Resting Time: 30 mins.
Total Time: 55 mins.
Servings: 8 shawarma bread

• Stovetop

• One tsp baking powder
• One tsp salt
• 300 g flour
• 120 ml of warm water and milk (used half and half)
• 20 g lard (substitute with 3 tbsp vegetable oil or butter)
• One tsp sugar (optional)

• Begin by combining the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, and lard in a bowl.
• Use your fingers to mix the ingredients together until a crumb-like consistency is achieved.
• Slowly pour in the water and milk mixture, adding half of it at a time, and continue mixing until a smooth dough forms.
• Transfer the dough to a worktop and knead it for approximately eight to ten minutes.
• Place the kneaded dough in a bowl that has been lightly oiled, then cover it with either cling film or a kitchen towel and allow it to rest for twenty to thirty minutes.
• After the resting period, divide the dough into six to eight balls on the worktop and let them rest for an additional ten minutes before proceeding to cook them.
• Preheat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat.
• Lightly dust the worktop with flour and roll out each dough ball until it is flattened. To prevent the dough from becoming soggy and difficult to handle, work with one ball at a time.
• Place the rolled-out dough on the heated frying pan and cook it for approximately one minute, or until bubbles appear on the surface and the bottom is lightly browned but not burnt.
• Flip the bread over and cook the other side for an additional thirty seconds.
• Once cooked, remove the shawarma bread from the heat and place it in an airtight container, oven, or microwave to keep it warm and prevent it from drying out.
• Serve the freshly made shawarma bread immediately and enjoy its delightful taste and texture!

Plantain mosa

Plantain mosa
Plantain mosa, a beloved Nigerian small chop, is a delightful treat often served at parties. This simple recipe will guide you through making this delicious snack in no time!
Prep Time: 5 mins.
Cook Time: 20 mins.
Course: Appetizer
Cuisine: African, Nigerian
Servings: 8-10

• One overripe plantain
• One tsp fast action yeast
• Two to three tbsp sugar (add more if desired, but keep in mind that the plantain will provide natural sweetness)
• One cup of semolina flour (250g), substitute with plain flour or cornmeal flour
• 200 to 250 ml warm water
• Vegetable oil for frying
• One tsp baking powder

• Start by peeling and cutting the overripe plantain into manageable pieces. Place these pieces in a bowl and mash them until a smooth consistency is achieved. Set the mashed plantain aside for later use.
• In a separate bowl, combine the semolina flour, sugar, and yeast, stirring until the ingredients are evenly distributed and well combined.
• Add the mashed plantain to the bowl containing the dry ingredients. Gradually pour in the warm water while stirring the mixture, ensuring that all ingredients are thoroughly incorporated. The resulting batter should have a slightly thick consistency.
• Cover the bowl containing the batter with either cling film or a kitchen towel. Place the covered bowl in the warmest area of your kitchen and allow the batter to rise for thirty to forty-five minutes.
• Pour three to four cups of vegetable oil into a pan and heat it over medium-high heat. To check if the oil is ready for frying, drop a small amount of batter into the hot oil. If the batter floats to the surface, the oil is at the correct temperature for frying.
• Using a spoon or scoop, carefully drop small portions of the batter into the hot oil. Slightly reduce the heat to ensure that the plantain mosa cooks evenly throughout.
• Fry each plantain mosa until it turns a golden brown color. Once cooked, remove the plantain mosa from the oil and place it on a kitchen towel to drain excess oil.
• Continue the process of scooping batter into the hot oil and frying until all the batter has been used.
• Allow the fried plantain mosa to cool to room temperature before serving. These delightful treats can be enjoyed on their own or paired with your favorite dip or sauce.
