1. 1 over ripe plantain.

2.  3 tablespoons of flour.

3.  2 teaspoon of yeast.

4.  Salt.

5.  Vegetable oil  ( For frying )                                                                                                    METHOD

1. Mix the yeast  with warm water, cover and set aside, make sure there are no lumps.

2. Peel the over ripe plantain and mash with a fork till a good blend is achieved. Set aside.

3. Sieve the flour and salt into a bowl and mix together.

4. Add the yeast solution and stir till you get a medium consistency. If it's too thick, add little warm water but it should not be watery.

 5. Add the mashed plantain, mix with a spoon till its well incorporated.

 6. Cover with a napkin. Leave in a warm place for about 15 -20 minutes.

 7. Heat some vegetable oil in a pot. The oil is hot enough when a small quantity of batter dropped into the oil quickly comes to the surface of the oil.

8. Scoop small amounts of the batter into the oil with your finger tips. Watch as they come up to the surface of the oil and puff up.

 9. Stir constantly till golden brown. Reduce the heat if the mosas are getting brown too quickly. This is to ensure that the inside is well cooked by the time the outside becomes brown.

10. When you are through with the frying, put the mosa in a sieve that is lined with paper to drain out the excess oil.

 The recipe above will give about 10 medium sized mosa. You can increase the recipe if you want to make more mosa.
