Equipment

Ingredients
  

  • 4 ripe plantains
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Pinch of salt optional
  • Ground chili powder or paprika optional, for added spice

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your grill or barbecue to medium-high heat.
  • Peel the plantains and slice them lengthwise into halves or quarters, depending on the desired size.
  • Lightly brush the plantain slices with vegetable oil to prevent sticking to the grill.
  • Optionally, sprinkle a pinch of salt or ground chili powder/paprika on the plantain slices for added flavor.
  • If desired, you can wrap each plantain slice in aluminum foil to create a pouch, which will help retain moisture and promote even grilling. This step is optional.
  • Place the plantain slices directly on the grill or barbecue, or place the aluminum foil pouches on the grill.
  • Grill the plantains for about 8-10 minutes on each side until they become tender and caramelized, with grill marks.
  • If using aluminum foil pouches, open them carefully to avoid steam burns.
  • Remove the grilled plantains from the grill and let them cool slightly before serving.
  • Serve the Nigerian Boli hot as a snack or side dish.
