New Recipe: Plantain Mosa (Plan-cakes)

By now, you would have noticed that I’m on a roll with recipes that use overripe plantains.

The African food grocer in my area now knows about my love for overripe plantains. These days, he uses them to give me jara when I buy ripe plantains. I don’t even need to ask!

Plantain Mosa (Plan-Cakes)

Overripe plantains are much more versatile than ripe plantains. With ripe plantains you can only fry or roast them. Some people boil them but that’s not so common. With overripe plantains you can prepare much more exciting meals. The good thing is that one can’t guess that these meals are prepared with plantains by mere looking at them. You’ll be deliciously suprised when you eat these meals. That element of surprise is what I love most about these overripe plantain delicacies.

I have at least one more overripe plantain recipe coming up so watch out for that. 😉
