If you're looking for a delicious, unique treat to make at home, why not try Accra Fritters? This deep-fried dough recipe, popular in the Caribbean and West Africa, is easy to make and packed with flavor. Read on for how to make your own batch of flavorful Accra Fritters!
To make a batch of Accra Fritters, you'll need all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, an egg and milk. Then, you'll also need oil for deep-frying the fritters and spices such as nutmeg or cinnamon (these are optional!). Once you've got all your ingredients ready, you're good to go!
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. For extra flavor, you can add some ground spices such as nutmeg or cinnamon (these are optional). Then, whisk in the egg and milk to form a batter. Let the batter sit and rest for 15 minutes before deep-frying. This will give it time to thicken up and make it easier to shape your fritters.
Once the batter has rested, heat vegetable oil in a deep pot to 375°F (190°C). Shape about three tablespoons of the fritter batter into a ball and carefully place it in the hot oil. Fry the fritters for about three minutes or until they are golden brown in color. Repeat this step for the remaining batter. Serve with maple syrup, ice cream or any other topping of your choice. Enjoy!
