LIGHT TATALE (PLANTAIN PANCAKE)

LIGHT TATALE (PLANTAIN PANCAKE)

 

If you have some overripe plantains lying in your kitchen, then this tatale recipe is the best way to utilise them! Tatale is a staple in Ghanaian cuisine. The main ingredient in tatale is mashed plantains which are spiced with a combination of ingredients to create the unique Ghanaian pancake. Traditionally, I have witnessed tatale being fried in an excessive amount of palm oil and this is why I created a lighter version which uses less oil. This recipe is plant-based, vegan, gluten-free (if you use a gluten-free flour instead) but most of all, delicious! Without further ado, here is the recipe!

 

TATALE (Plantain pancake)

Servings 5 small pancakes (roughly)

Ingredients

  • 2 small Overipe plantains (Or 1 large overripe plantain)
  • 1 thumb-sized Piece of fresh ginger (Grated)

  • 1/2 Spring Onion

  • 3 tbsp Flour of your choice (White, gluten free, oat)
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil (For cooking)

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, mash your plantain until it is smooth. 

  2. Add the rest of your ingredients into the bowl and mix until completely combined.

  4. Enjoy! x


 

I served my tatale with a chunky version of my guacamole recipe! The combination was perfect!
