Kabalagala / Ugandan Banana and Cassava Pancakes

These were sold by my grandfather in his duka (shop) in Bukandula in Uganda fro 2 cents a piece.  My grandmother, mother and aunts used to make them out of sweet apple (menvu) bananas and cassava flour.   They are original Nubian and were called kabalagara.  They are still a very popular street food, in fact the area Kabalagala in Kampala is named after it.

 Apple Bananas or Menvu


Ingredients

400 g (7) apple bananas; mashed
176 g cassava flour
oil for frying

Method

  1. Add the flour, a bit at a time to the bananas and mix using a fork until a soft dough forms
  2. Knead until it is not sticky
  3. Leave for 30 minutes
  4. Roll the dough to half an inch thick and cut circles using a cookie cutter.
  5. Deep fry, turning the pancakes until both sides are brown
