Akpith (corn/maize and Bean Flour Snack)

1 1/2 c Corn/maize meal
1/2 c Soy flour
1 1/2 tb Baking powder
1/2 ts Chili powder (optional)
Sugar to taste
1 c Water
Salt and pepper

In a large saucepan, boil the water and then in half of the corn/maize meal and all the soy flour to make a thick porridge. Add the baking powder, chili powder if using and sugar; season.

Cook this for 10 minutes over a low heat, stirring constantly. Then remove the pan and set aside to cool for 10 minutes or so.

At this point, mix in the remaining corn/maize meal and combine thoroughly, adding water to produce a stiff dough.

Now pour enough oil into a pan or wok to give a depth of around 2 inches (5 cms), and heat up. While it is warming mould the dough into balls about 1 inch (2. 5 cms) in diameter.

With the oil sizzling hot, slide 4 or 5 balls carefully into the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes until they are golden brown.
