Published: January 14, 2015
Did you know plantain is often used as an alternative to cassava when making “swallows”. It is relatively healthier as it contains fewer calories than cassava and is richer in fibre and vitamin A. So try something different today and help yourself to this simple plantain amala recipe!
- 2 green (unripe) plantains
- 1 cup water
- Hand mixer
- Peel, dice plantains and put in blender. Add water and blend till it becomes a smooth paste
- Pour plantain into pot and place over medium heat. Using a hand mixer, mix on level 1 for 2 minutes, then on level 2 and 3 for 1-2 minutes each till it becomes thick
- Take off heat and leave to cool for 2 minutes so it thickens even more.
- Serve hot on a dish with preferred soup. **This was served with ogbono**
