Dodo (Fried Plantains) Recipe

Nigerians eat plantains for a starchy side dish. Their skin should be yellowish green for this dish – if skins are too black (very ripe), plantains will be too sweet and not starchy enough. Plantains can be found in your local supermarket.

Prep: 5 minutes | Fry: 5 minutes | Serves: 6-8

Nigerian Dodo


  • 4 plantains, peeled and sliced
  • Canola oil for frying
  • Salt to taste


  1. Heat oil in frying pan (oil should be 1/2 inch deep)
  2. Place peeled and sliced plantains in frying pan.  Fry for 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  3. Drain on paper towels.
  4. Season with salt.
  5. Serve warm.
