Kelewele refers to one of Ghana's food and a popular type of street food made of spicy and sweetish deep-fried plantains (ripe cooking bananas). It is Ghana's version of "french fries" , although Ghana's version is made of plantains sliced into long strips , tossed with salt, chili and ginger then deep-fried. In Ghana, Kelewele is served as an evening or an after dinner treat.

Personal Note: We have so many varieties of bananas in the Philippines. We usually prepare them as sweet treat or dessert, but never as a savory treat. I will definitely try to cook this when i return to my country.
