As a plantain loving family,it’s almost impossible to find over ripe plantains in my home because it is either used up as fried plantains for omelette or plantain chips for family game nights.

This ripe plantain puff puff with pepper is not too peppery or spicy but if you like a lot of heat, you can increase the pepper in the ingredients or adjust to your taste.

Before I start with the recipe, I like to check that the plantains are just over ripe and not rotten. Rotten plantains would have an awful smell and won’t smell ” plantainy”.

How to prepare plantain puff puff

Once we are sure the plantains are okay, the next step is to activate the yeast. No matter the type of yeast I’m using, I like to test the viabilty of the yeast, to be sure it is alive before I introduce the other ingredients. In this way, nothing goes to waste.

The over ripe plantains can be mashed with a fork or potato masher before use, but I like to do the easier method of blending it with the rest of the ingredients until I get a smooth batter. Saves time too.

The batter is finally scooped into hot oil and I have the opion of using a deep spoon or an ice cream scoop, but the villager in me always opts for the traditional method of scooping the batter into the oil with clean hands. And yes, I don’t mind getting my hands sticky.
