Fried Plantain & Egg
Hard to believe there is quite an absence of oil in this dish lol. Famous Nigerian dish which is quite simple to make!! If your not familiar with Plantain all you need to do is buy some, their quite similar to bananas but often larger and taste very very very very different. You should get some from your local African market or something similar, simply peel the plantain because you won’t need the skin. Then cut into thin slices and fry in a deep pan with a lot of oil for the plantain to float until their are darkened in colour.
The accompaniment of eggs with this dish makes it what it is, and this variety of eggs is quite interested and can be changed to suit your liking. All you need it some tomatoes, onions, and some kind of pepper, I usually use a scotch bonnet. Now there’s a formula I use when making this, always use twice the amount of tomatoes than the onions and the pepper should be to your taste.
Now you wanna slice the tomatoes, onions and scotch bonnet Julienne, and fry them in quite a bit of oil for about 5 minutes on a medium heat. Then pour in your whisked eggs and continue to mix over the pan until the eggs are cooked.
Assemble together on a plate and Enjoy!!! Just make sure you don’t over do the pepper I use one scotch bonnet for 5 eggs and that turns out okay. You could always add your own additions, Mother tells me people often add in corned beef or mackerel so what ever you fancy!!!
