Akara also known as bean cake, acaraje or akaraje can described as peeled beans, deep-fried into a ball. It is a typical Nigerian recipe served as breakfast accompanied with pap, custard, bread or garri. Also, it is often served at funeral services.
On a fateful day in In September 2017, I was at my aunt’s place when she wanted to prepare bean cake. “Dami, do you like akara elepo? My husband likes it. There’s this way I now make my akara which gives it this fluffy and crunchy taste” she said. And I went like, “Okay… so what method is that?”
Truth is, this method is your next favorite recipe. It’s easy and gives good results. Although, I used vegetable oil in this recipe, if you want palm oil, just substitute the vegetable oil with it and fry.
“I’ve made this recipe thrice and the taste has been unflinchingly good.”
