Koba is a sweet made from ground peanuts, brown sugar and rice flour. Koba hawkers are common in many Asian countries, and is a traditional food of Madagascar (where it is also known as kobindravina), especially in the highlands. In marketplaces and gas stations one may find vendors selling koba akondro, a sweet made by wrapping a batter of ground peanuts, mashed bananas, honey and corn flour in banana leaves and steaming or boiling the small cakes until the batter has set.
