  • Published:

Like me, Akara balls, popularly referred to bean cake, reminds a good number of Nigerian families of their Saturday breakfast.

Akara is a Nigerian snack, made with beans and a few other ingredients and spices. It's usually prepared by deep frying it. Little wonder, some consider it as a fattening meal. But, it doesn't have to be one if only you use the right kind of oil or you could even flat fry it, making it into a pancake. I mean, why should anyone be stopped from taking this delicious and healthy source of plant protein when you can modify or tweak your method of preparation just so it is totally fit for your consumption no matter the kind of diet plan you're on.
