Have overripe plantain in your kitchen and don’t know what to do with it? Do not be bothered, let us teach you how to make plantain Mosa quickly.

Below is a very easy recipe:


  • 1 overripe plantain
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons plain flour (all purpose flour)
  • Cool water
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Ground cayenne pepper (to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons evaporated milk (Peak Milk)
  • Vegetable oil (for frying)



  • Break the egg into a bowl, beat and set aside.
  • Peel the overripe plantain and mash with a fork till a good blend is achieved.
  • Add cool water to the mashed plantain bit by bit and mix on each occasion till you get a medium consistency.
  • Pass the medium consistency blend through a sieve into the egg. Mix very well.
  • Sift the plain flour into the mixture from Step 4. Mix thoroughly.
  • Add salt, cayenne pepper and evaporated milk and stir very well. It is ready to be fried.
  • Set your frying pan over medium heat and pour a small quantity of vegetable oil; just enough to grease the frying pan. This should be about 1 tablespoon of oil.
  • When hot, pour a small amount of batter into the pan to make a 5mm thick and 5 inch diameter plan-cake.
  • Keep an eye on it and once you see the edge of the plan-cake caking, flip it to fry the other side too.
  • It is ready when both sides are light brown. They should look like the Plantain Mosas in the image above.
  • Fry the rest of the dough using steps 8 to 10. That’s it!
