Boiled Plantain - ingredients
* 2 ripe plantains/unripe plantains
(ripe plantains are sweeter, than unripe plantains, and takes less time to cook, but unripe plantains are also great if you're watching your sugar intake)
*Salt to taste
*Water (enough to cover the plantains)
Boiled Plantain- cooking directions
* First wash the plantains thoroughly. This is because, you'll be cooking the plantain with the skin on. I like to use saline water(salt+water) or a mixture of vinegar and water.
* Now cut the clean plantains to chunks and place in a pot.
*Add enough water to cover it , add salt to taste and leave to cook until the plantains are tender. You can check this by pricking it with a fork.If the fork goes in smoothly...your boiled plantain is ready .
*Take the plantains out of the water, leave to cool a bit and peel of the skin.
You can serve with pepper sauce, tomato stew, obe ata dindin (fried pepper stew), Palm oil sauce, or eat alone with groundnuts. ENJOY.
