Never throw out squishy, moldy black plantains. They are perfect for many things, such as this recipe, reminiscent of both Savory Plantain Pancakes (Tatale) and Ghana-Style Donuts (Bofrot/Togbei). Many Ghanaians choose these balls as a favorite snack or side dish, especially when served with a Fresh Pepper Sauce or Shito. They also pair well with Bean Stew (Red-Red). While the seasoning ingredients are similar to those for tatale, the texture is quite different. This recipe is from Flair.
Kaklo can be eaten warm or at room temperature.
