Pounded yellow plantain
This dish is from my childhood. When well made it feel like a blanket on the tongue. I just love this dish.
In the meantime open the tin of beans rinse them before warming them up in boiling water for 5 minutes. Then, drain again. Set aside.
Remove the plantain from the boil, rinse, peel and place in a salad bowl then mash as you would potatoes.
Once the plantain has been mashed to preference, add the drained kidney beans, salt, finely chopped chilly and oil.
Mix all very gently avoiding crushing the beans. Taste, then, adjust the salt… Serve.
I love the sweet and salty taste of this dish and also the nuttiness that comes from the palm oil.
Hope you will try it and come back to tell me about it.
