I published a post on making healthy akara balls at home. In
I explained how to make akara balls. From skinning the beans,
to milling or blending with the ingredients, to frying in hot oil and serving HOT.
In case you missed that post, you can find it HERE.

It was very rich and tasty. While we the adults enjoyed it so much,
two of my girls said the akara smelled like fish and they didn't like it much.
I promised to make the regular akara balls for them,
and that is just what I did here. The only ingredients I used here are :
- Skinned beans
- Red Pepper
- Vegetable oil
|blending skinned beans and red pepper for akara balls|
just fetching the salted ground beans and dropping in the hot vegetable oil.
Frying is the same as THIS HERE

sweetened and served hot.
The akamu served here is sweetened with honey,
while the one served in my earlier post was sweetened with sugar. See the recipe HERE.
