This is one of my favorite Haitian recipes that will leave you wanting more after the first bite. My parents used to make this on Saturdays. Sometimes, adding shredded herring fish to the mixture as well before frying. Accra can be served alone as an appetizer but is usually served at parties or gatherings with fried chicken, fried pork, or fried beef with fried plantains and a light salad or pikliz which I will post the recipe for very soon. I will also post the quick and easy version of this recipe. I hope that you enjoy this recipe as much as I have.
