Top 10 Most Popular African Food Food You Must Try

By  |  0 Comments
We initially wanted this list to be about the top 10 “best” African food recipes, but coming up with such a list proved too difficult. Truth be told, Africa cuisine is so rich and diverse that choosing ‘the best’ is 1) virtually impossible and 2) too controversial. A list of of the most popular food from the continent, however, is very plausible.

Scroll through our list and let us know what you think. If you think we are missing anything extra yummy and/or popular, do let us know in the comments.

Fried Plantains

10 Fried Sweet Plantains

Fried sweet plantains, also known as Kelewele Dodo or Allocco, is a common dish prepared all across Africa. Although they resemble bananas in appearance, plantains are very starchy and cannot be eaten raw. However, slicing and frying them achieves a wonderfully chewy texture, depending on how ripe they are.

Fried sweet plantains are often served as an appetizer, snack dish or side dish alongside main courses including a variety of meats and stews. They are usually seasoned with spices, sprinkled with salt or eaten plain.
