In the coming weeks, find inspiring Christmas recipes on my blog with the 'Ndudu twist'. 

Ingredients are carefully selected to ensure they're readily available to everyone and alternatives are offered. 

Let's start with this easy but equally impressive nibble. 

Thinking about ways to incorporate similar but unusual flavours to traditional recipes enabled me to create this recipe. 

This recipe is inspired by 'Kelewele' (a spicy fried, cubed ripened Plantain) which is a popular street food in Ghana. 
Click here for the Kelewele recipe. 

Kelewele is served with peanuts , hence the idea of making a Suya crumble(made from peanuts and African spices) to accompany the Plantain would be a match made in heaven. 

Enjoy this nutty, sweet, spicy snack and don't forget to comment and leave a feedback.  


2 large ripened , peeled Plantain cut in half and into long strips. 
100ml of Coconut oil

Herby Suya mix
15g of finely chopped fresh Oregano or your favourite herb. 
30g of finely diced spring onions 
10g of finely diced fresh Parsley 
50g of Suya mix
20g of crushed roasted peanuts
Salt and pepper to taste 

 Mint, Lemon rind, Coriander or Basil


Add the Coconut oil to a frying pan, place on a medium heat for 3-4 minutes. 

Add the Plantain strips, fry for 2 minutes on each side and set aside.

Mix all the Suya ingredients (to create a herby Suya mix) together into a crumble texture and set aside.  

Toss the hot Plantain in the Suya mix and serve immediately. 

Perfect with Apple juice, Palm wine or Cider.
