People enjoy eating akara beans cake and ogi [corn papa] together. Fries make an excellent breakfast for those who enjoy them. However, there is so much to Akara that we hesitate to serve it as a meal. For some people, Akara is not a very nutritious food because, when frying, the oil can heat up to the point of smoking. Some of the topics covered in this article will help to reduce health risks. If, on the other hand, you adore it and must consume it, there are a few things you should do.

1. Take the oil out of your akara.

After frying beans cake, you'll need to extract the oil. Studies have shown that fat from oil can raise cholesterol levels.

Extracting it will reduce the amount of oil in this meal as well as the health risks associated with it. Three or four balls of Akara will yield enough oil for two eggs.

2. Fry on a Low Heat Setting.

If you're going to fry your Akara by yourself, make sure it's on a low heat setting. Also, avoid reusing the oil.

Low-heat frying prevents the oil from reaching a smoking point during the cooking process. It is safer for you to use low heat.

3. Experiment with Different Preparations.

If you're having trouble with the extraction process, consider some more options. You should try different ways of preparing Akara to make it safe to eat. One option is to bake it in the oven. You will use very little oil to rub on the baking pan this way.
