· Approximately half a cup of All Purpose Flour

· Quarter cup Olive Oil

· Pinch of Salt to taste


How Do I Make This?

· Peel plantains and blend together with spicy paste.

· Add salt and flour and mix well.  If mixture is too soft, add a tablespoon or two of flour.  The mixture must fall off a wooden spoon slowly.

· Heat oil in a frying pan.

· Using a large wooden spoon, put mixture in the oil, one spoonful at a time.  Don’t overfill the frying pan as the mixture rises and spreads.  Leave a space between each spoonful.

· Fry for 5 minutes on each side or until golden.

About the author

Eric P

I am an ardent reader and love to learn anything from archaeology to zoology, you can call me "Jack of all trades, master of all".

I love to write and that's exactly what I do at I write on almost everything but my passion is on relationships. I believe it's the foundation of mankind, without it, we wouldn't be here.

Anybody I've come in contact with, admonishes me to be a relationship therapist, so who knows? Maybe that is what the future holds for me...
