|Plantain pottage served with grilled chicken.|
First I cooked my plantain like this plantain recipe, except that I didn't add locust beans because I am going to add assorted veggies here. While plantain cooked, I chopped and diced my vegetables, greased the fry pan with a little vegetable oil and added the vegetables with some seasoning cubes for taste. I stirred and allowed to sautee until onion becomes translucent and vegetables taste good not raw. I then added the already cooked vegetables to my already cooked pot of plantain pottage, stirred and served. I did not cook the pottage together with the vegetables, else they'll overcook and taste bad too. The chicken too was grilled separately and served with the pottage. The chicken wasn't cooked together with the pottage. This meal turned out really tasty.
You can cook your normal Nigerian plantain porridge the way you love it, then sautee vegetables in a fry pan and add to already cooked food.
