I’m back with another food blog post and this is for my beans lover . I want to share a simple recipe with you and I think you would love it. Akara popularly called beans cake is a dish loved mostly by the yorubas bit even the eastern and northern part of Nigeria also loves it especially when taking with pap,cassava flakes or bread
Beancake is a very delicious meal to learn and make .
Now you don’t have to go through the stress of soaking your beans and peeling off the outer layer and grind.
Nah that’s an old way of making beans cake (akara)
You can always keep your beans grinded and preserved Like a flour.
So let me teach you how to make a beancake flour
-buy your beans ( depending on the modules you need)
-pick out the diets and stones from the beans
– take it to the grinder , they’d grind it for you dry( note that they mustn’t add any water at all, it should be grinded like that, dry like a flour
-You can always keep it in a container that is a tight lead so as not to allow water or dirts enter .
– whenever you are ready to make your beans cake
These are the things you will be needing
1. Small bowl to mix your floured beans
3. Big spoon to stir/mix
4. Red pepper ( the size should depend on how much you eat/love pepper
6. Vegetable oil/palm oil (your choice)
11. Stirrer/turner( Yoruba call it origin)
Having gotten all of this
Then let’s proceed to the making
– pour the quantity of beans flour you want to mix inside a small bowl then add the normal quantity of salt to taste
– add normal little little water severely until its mixed together and then used your storer to stir in a circular motion until its gets fluffy and soft( max and min of 10 minutes )
– while stiring add the grated pepper and onions , then keep stiring
-Once it’s gets fluffy, then it’s time to dry
-Switch on your cooker/gas
– put your clean pan on the fire and put your oil
– once the oil is heated, get your small 🥄 ready and start layering the beancake in small particles inside the heated oil
– then use your long fork to change the sides so as to allow both sides fried.
– then get them into a plate
Note- avoid sand or stones during the process
Your bean cakes are ready to be served with corn meal, cassava flakes , bread, juice or what have you.
