Mofo Anana | Malagasy Mofo Sakay

Mofo Sakay

Mofo Anana or Malagasy Mofo Sakay, a spicy bread from Madagascar is a popular local street snack. Mofo Sakay is a mix of greens along with tomato mixed in a spicy batter and deep fried.

I came across this recipe that talks about the simple stovetop bread called the mofo (moo-fu) available throughout Madagascar as a street snack. From shapes varying as round semi sweet breakfast bread called the mofo gasy to savoury bread mixed with vegetables, they have a mofo for any time of the day.

Mofo Anana means leafy greens bread is a simple and easy fried bread made from a batter mixed with greens and tomatoes. The batter is then dropped as balls into oil and deep fried. These are served along with sakay. So it is in general referred as Mofo Sakay. Apart from these, other versions like mofo liasoa made with cabbage are available all time. These are most commonly sold through the day and you can pick up anytime you visit the marketplace.

I stuck to this recipe that called for all purpose flour along with watercress where I used spinach and a curry powder, where I replaced with sambar powder. I served this as a side dish to munch when I had made soya biryani and the combination really worked out so well.

We really enjoyed this Mofo that was my choice for M in the A to Z International Street Foods. If you are interested to know the Flatbread for M, check this post.
