How To Make 'Nigeria Boli' Roasted Plaintain with Groundnut Recipe

Boli or Bole (Nigerian roasted plantain) is a delicious and filling street snack.
It is popular as a snack for students and low income earners, but If you are a Nigerian, you would agree with me that when it comes to Boli, there is no class... simply pure enjoyment ☺.


 Even though this yummy snack got its popularity on the street, it can also be prepared at home, in an oven or an open grill.

Boli is usually enjoyed with roasted groundnuts (peanuts), grilled fish or pepper sauce.
 Here's how to prepare it.

Ingredients for Boli Nigerian Roasted Plantain (Nigerian Grilled Plantain):

- Yellow or Ripe plantains

- Salt to taste

- Grilled Fish, pepper sauce or groundnut( for serving the Boli)


1. Wash the plantains, then make a slit on the sides and peel of the coat.

2. Pre-heat your oven grill at 170ÂșC until hot.

3. Rub a little salt on the plantains and then place the peeled plantains on the grill rack and transfer into the hot oven.

4. Turn the plantains over from time to time, so that the other sides can roast evenly.

Depending on how ripe the plantains are, this process could takes about 15 minutes(more or less)

The Boli is ready when all side are properly cooked.

Serve and enjoy with Pepper sauce, grilled fish or roasted groundnuts.

Note: for the fish in this recipe, I marinated the mackerel fish with only stock cubes and vegetable oil before grilling.
