  • Summary

    How to make Akara - Akara is a very delicious, vegetarian-friendly meal eaten in most parts of Africa. Though it's origin is from the Yoruba tribe of Nigeria but somehow it has found it's way to the hearts of other African countries and even beyond. A well made Akara should be Light, Airy, soft and fairly rounded. When the Akara appears flat it means enough air has not been introduced into the batter, that is why it is very important to whisk the batter or simply stir it for a couple of minutes before frying it.
