Sese Planti Recipe
Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 30 mins
Total: 35 mins
3 unripe plantains
Half a cup palm oil
A quarter cup crayfish
1 medium onion – chopped
1 pound/half kg of boiled beef (smoked fish and chicken are good alternatives)
2 seasoning cubes (Maggi or Knorr)
3 gloves of garlic
A quarter of an inch, ginger
1 hot (habanero) pepper
A handful of green leafy vegetables (I used collard greens- You could use spinach or bitterleaf)
A teaspoon of salt
First, note that your plantains should be unripe and firm to the touch.
Peel them and cut into thick circles.
Put in a pot and add about 3 cups of water.
Add in your palm oil, chopped onions and crayfish.
Let all that goodness simmer together for about 15 minutes. The sauce will show a perfect blend of the oil and water.
Now peel your garlic and ginger. Blend together with pepper and throw in. Add in salt, maggi and meat or fish and let that cook for another 10 minutes. Add in water if needed.
Finally throw in your green leafy vegetables and stir.
Brethren, this food is the truth!
