by Marko Judia

Mofo anana are two words in Madagascar local language that holds the meaning of bread and leafy greens respectively. These snacks are easily found almost in every part on the island of Madagascar.

Madagascar is located on the western part of the African continent. It is an island in the Indian ocean. Easy spot can be routed from the coasts of Africa.

Mofo anana preparation may take as less as 10 minutes, more less for an expert.

The greens are chopped and mixed with bread soft dough, then allowed to cool for some time before they are fried.

Chills added gives it a more sweet and hot taste to make you come back for more, although to some consumers who do not prefer chills they give a thumb down.

The cuisine is eaten with a side soup known to have chills, garlic and ginger only to add more taste.
