African cream puff?

African Cuisine: I remember two awesome things I ate on a festival years ago. I want to make them myself. Problem: I don't know what exactly it was. Do you?

1) Likely millet, but there may have been a second version with rice. Prepared in a pan, vegetarian. Mild taste. The closest thing I can compare it to would be fried rice with vegetables that Chinese restaurants serve with duck.
2) A dessert. Looks like a miniature cream puff, same dough, but not filled. Sweet, but not tooth-achingly sweet taste.
I ate both from the same booth on a festival; the booth was only labeled "African". The owner either said that she is from Ghana and the food a traditional recipe from Kenya or vice versa, if that is any help.
What are these two things and where can I find recipes?
