I am sorry about leaving that link even after exporting my kitchen diary here. Sorry to all my readers who tried to access the unripe plantain porridge recipe but couldn't.
Ingredients for unripe porridge plantain:
Cooking steps for green unripe plantain:
This unripe plantain porridge is given to mothers who just give birth to babies. Theirs is cooked with a lot of sauce (water) and the vegetable used is uziza. I cooked with the Fluted pumpkin ( ugu) leaves instead of hot leaf. This is so delicious. The vegetable was the last thing to be added and as soon as I added, the heat was turned off to avoid cooking the green vegetables. The steps are the same as the previous one but the taste is slightly different for a change. If the veggies are not over cooked, you get the crunchy sound when chewing.
Unlike ripe plantain, this one does not contain that sugar, so.
I love it because I do not want my weight to increase any further. The taste is even nicer than the color For those struggling with weight loss or weight gain, why not drop the ripe plantain for a while and enjoy this delicacy.
Unripe Plantain porridge can be eaten at any time of the day. The quantity of water depends on how soft you want your porridge and the quantity of soup you want to enjoy with your plantain. It can be chopped into very tiny pieces but I like to do more of the chopping with my fork and knife while at the table. Sometimes I chop into bigger sizes than what is here.
Plantain is best eaten when still unripe, and there is no better way than making some delicious porridge. To see pictures of unripe plantain, GO HERE. Also see boiled unripe plantain with egg plant stew HERE
