'Chopped and spiced uncooked ripe plantain'
This is spicy ripe plantain Called Kelewele. A popular snack in Ghana. It's sold after 6p.m in the evenings by the roadside, at junctions, near bars or wherever people congregate. Often accompanied by fried or roast peanuts. The kelewele woman will deep fry large amounts and you stand in a queue and get yours in a banana leaf or newspaper. My bro who's been addicted to this since he was a kid, bought us some nearly every evening in Ghana.(Actually he loves plantain in every form, mashed, boiled, fried, roasted, frittered, doughballed...) My kids are hooked. This is my version:
Get a nice soft ripe plantain.
Chop into small pieces.
Blend a little onion, garlic, scotch bonnet(or chilli) ginger.
Add some coconut oil(vegetable oil is ok) and mix.
Oil a foil covered tray.
Spread it out on the tray.
Bake in the oven.
It works just like you deep fried it. I cheated on this one and used powdered onion,garlic,chilli and ginger. The fresh stuff does give it that extra- more authentic taste
