  4. Divide the mixture into small portions and roll them into koftas.
  5. Add enough oil in a sauce pan for shallow frying and fry the koftas in hot oil until golden. Drain them on a paper towel and set ready.

Boil the plantains until just done. Do not forget to run them under cold water. This stops from absorbing more moisture.
