Kakro Recipe (Plaintain Fritters)

Jan 12, 2014 • ArticlesNo Comments

The thing I like about plantain is the fact that there are no restrictions as to when you can or cannot eat it. They taste great whatever the stage of ripeness.

Kakro is a delicious donut-style snack made from over ripened plantains. This snack is something that my mother used to make on special occasions and it’s such a quick and easy recipe.  Kakro can be eaten by itself or served as a side.
