Snack on peppered puff-puff and grilled plantain!

The taste of puff-puff with a cold bottle of water to step down the hot weather is one of the best feelings. But what if it could be spicy (with ata rodo), you know, with a Yoruba touch. Let’s check out this tasty recipe together.
Prep Time: 2 hrs.
Cook Time: 20 mins.
Total Time: 2 hours 20 mins.
Servings: 7

• 200 grams of sugar
• One pack or two and a quarter teaspoons of active dry yeast
• One-half tablespoon of salt
• One-quarter to one-half tablespoon of pepper
• 700 grams of plain flour
• 650 milliliters of warm water
• One-half tablespoon of nutmeg
• Vegetable oil or sunflower oil for frying

• Begin by whisking together six hundred fifty milliliters of warm water, two hundred grams of sugar, one-half tablespoon of salt, and one pack (or two and a quarter teaspoons) of active dry yeast in a large bowl. Allow it to sit for five minutes to activate the yeast.
• Stir in seven hundred grams of plain flour, one-half tablespoon of nutmeg, and one-quarter to one-half tablespoon of pepper until the mixture has a pancake batter-like consistency. Cover the bowl with a clean cloth and let it rise in a warm place for one to two hours.
• Get a bowl ready with paper towels for draining the fried puff puffs later.
• Heat a generous amount of vegetable or sunflower oil in a deep saucepan. You’ll want enough oil for the puff puffs to be submerged and float freely.
• Carefully squeeze small amounts of the batter into the hot oil, frying them until golden brown. Use a slotted spoon to move the puff puffs onto the paper towels to drain.
• Continue frying in batches until you’ve used up all the batter.
• Serve the puff puffs warm and enjoy the delicious treats you’ve created!

Grilled plantain
Grilled Plantains are a delightful side dish, easy to prepare and bursting with flavor, making them a fantastic addition to a wide range of meals. Whether enjoyed in their simplest form or enhanced with sweeteners and spices, these plantains capture the essence of tropical cuisine.
Prep Time: 5 mins.
Cook Time: 10 mins.
Total Time: 15 mins.
Servings: 7
• Two tablespoons coconut oil
• Three plantain (ripe yet firm works best)
• Warm up your grill to a high heat, about 500°F.
• Trim off the ends of each plantain, then carefully slice down the middle of the peel, avoiding cutting into the plantain. Remove and discard the peel. Slice each plantain in half across, then slice each half lengthwise to make 12 pieces in total.
• Apply coconut oil to one side of the plantain pieces and place them oiled side down on the grill. Brush the top side with more oil.
• Grill for 4 to 6 minutes, basting with oil as needed to prevent drying, until they begin to brown.
• Flip the plantains over and continue grilling and basting until they are lightly browned and tender.
• Serve plain or enhance with a sprinkle of brown sugar, a drizzle of maple syrup, or honey, according to your taste.
