Let us begin! 









  • Prepare the beans by soaking and dehulling two days in advance.
  • Place the beans into a sturdy blender and begin to pulse until smooth. Add 1/4 cup of water at a time to facilitate the blending process.
  • Add the onion, ginger, and scotch bonnet pepper to the blender.
  • Pulse until smooth.
  • Add salt and mix them into the batter.
  • Heat up the cooking oil in a small- to medium-sized saucepan.
  • Test the readiness of the oil by adding a shaved piece of ginger. If it sizzles and rises to the top, the oil is hot enough.
  • Using a tablespoon to scoop the batter, spoon about 5 tablespoons of batter into the oil. You will see them puff up into round balls.
  • Allow to fry for 3 to 4 minutes. Turn them halfway through to ensure they are evenly browned.
  • Once cooked, scoop them out of the oil using a slotted spoon or spider, and allow to drain on a paper towel.
  • You can also enjoy them the traditional Hausa breakfast way, with porridge known as Hausa kooko.
