How To Fry Nigerian Kokoro

How To Fry Nigerian Kokoro

Kokoro is a crunchy Nigerian snack that is shaped into a stick. It is prepared by combining maize flour paste with sugar and cassava or yam flour. 

The concoction is rolled on a flat surface or between one’s palms in order to get a long stick, which is then fried in palm oil or groundnut oil.

There are two basic versions of kokoro – one is plain, and the other one is spicy, with added chili peppers or chili powder. 

Ginger can also be used to add extra flavor to kokoro, but it is completely optional. These extremely crunchy snacks can be eaten on their own or with fruit juices and soft drinks on the side.

DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO FRY NIGERIAN KOKORO

Combine half cup of the cornmeal, sugar, pepper, salt and grated ginger in a large bowl and set aside

Pour half cup of water into a pot, leave to boil and then add the mixed corn meal, stir continuously until you get a stretchy mix that looks just like Eba.

Pour the cooked cornmeal dough in a big bowl, cover and leave to cool completely

When it is cooled, add the remaining cornmeal and knead on a flat surface until smooth.

Take a little portion and roll in between your palm or roll it on a flat surface to get a long shape. Repeat this process for the remaining dough.
