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.


Sierra Leone Fried Banana Rice Dumplings



Ingredients

3 medium very ripe bananas, mashed
1 1/4 cup rice flour
1/2 cup white sugar
Water as needed
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Oil for frying


Directions

Heat 2 inches oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Mash the bananas into a paste in a bowl. Alternate adding rice flour and a little water to make a stiff batter. Stir in the sugar. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture into the hot oil and fry until golden brown, dumplings will float to the top when done. Drain on kitchen paper to remove excess oil.
