The Nigerian love of plantains has always amazed me. If you ask the typical Nigerian how they like their plantains, many would say fried (dodo), boiled or roasted (bole). It was not until I stepped out of the Nigerian cuisine space that I found many other cultures also like plantain. i have noticed Jamaicans fry their plantains when it is very soft. Not entirely sure why but i’m sure there is a solid reason. Ghanians also make some interesting dishes with plantain and a good example is Kelewele. In some parts of India, Steamed plantain is a delicacy and is most often consumed as a breakfast dish. Recently, I saw a little argument on twitter going on amongst Nigerians and the topic was fried plantains also known as Dodo. Many were not in favour of cooks that salted the plantains before frying and some others loved the salt. Now my question to you today is;
How do you like your fried plantains? Salted or Unsalted?
