Sierra Leone Fried Banana Rice Dumplings

Easy Sierra Leone Recipe



The Kambia District in North Sierra Leone is considered the main rice bowl of the country with its large farms, widespread mangrove swamps and large river creeks. 

Rice is the country's staple yet most of the rice Sierra Leone eats is imported from Asia. Sierra Leone’s traditional rice dishes are cooked simply in salted water or ground into flour, served with fish, meat and vegetable dishes.
