|A pot of plantain porridge.|
It can be mashed and served to
babies being introduced to solid foods.
I added vegetables to the ones published before but didn't add to this. This meal, when prpared with goat meat gives a very yummy aroma. Adding scent leaves makes it best for women who have just given birth as they eat and drink the porridge. A little uziza seeds too can make a great difference and for those who like locust beans, just add a little and enjoy the rich taste with a difference.
Plantain porridge tastes better when cooked till soft and a bit thick. I do not add crayfish to plantain porridge and there is no reason for that. For thos who like their plantain fairly ripe, you may not enjoy the porridge like when you cook with very green unripe plantain. The sizes can be chopped smaller or longer than mind depending on how you like your porridge.
I enjoy plantain porridge cooked with tiny fingers plantain better than large fingers. I think the latter is better with Dodo.
I love cooking this with dry catfish but managed with croaker since there was not catfish at home. Catfish gives it an excellent taste. The bushmeat used here is a porcupine. It is my favourite.
