Unripe Plantain Fritters By Zinny

Unripe plantain fritters. Not spicy so, I guess pregnant moms will love this
 Peel and grate the plantain using the side of grater that would give it a flaky look(I used small and big pores to get an uneven texture). Remove the seed from the tomatoes. Dice the tomatoes, onions and pepper and place in a small bowl. Add the flour, salt, maggi and whisked egg and combine thoroughly. (I used my fingers to do this.) Add the mashed fish and if you've got a sweet tooth or making this for kids, you can
add sugar. Heat your oil and scoop with a flat spoon and fry on medium heat so it cooks properly inside. Turn sides to get a golden brown colour. Best served warm with tea/oatmeal/pap.

1 finger of Unripe plantain
4tbs full flour
Strong ripe Tomatoes
1 egg
Pinch of salt
Pinch of maggi
1 seed of pepper
One tsp full of Ice Fish(optional)
Vegetable oil for frying

*ideally, this is supposed to be deep fried, but I fried normally. Also, you can use any veggies of choice: mushroom etc. For this I didn't use fish because it wasn't readily available. I also hope someone can do this with a mixture of ripe and unripe plantain and tell us how it goes. Plantain can be substituted with Irish or sweet potatoes.
