Happy Holidays! I hope everyone has had a lovely Christmas spent with family and look forward to celebrating the new year too and welcoming in 2015.
This year, I wore this snake skin patterned jacquard dress with a flattering A-line style and teamed with black tights and black ankle strap heels. I finished the look with MAC's ruby woo for festive red lips.
Christmas day at the Noah's is always a fancy affair with everyone wearing their best dressed outfits, ready for a scrumptious dinner. We all contribute to cooking delicious Cameroonian dishes. This year, it was my turn to prepare the plaintains.
Plaintains look similar to a very ripe banana but slightly bigger
Fried plantains are a traditional treat in many parts of the world, not just Cameroon, and always go down well as an accompaniment, or side dish to other meals.
Here is my quick and simple recipe to preparing plaintains:
- 2-3 ripe plaintains (for four people appx)
- Vegetable oil (or coconut oil as a healthier alternative)
- Frying pan
Fry the plaintains in shallow oil on a hot stove
- Peel the plantains and cut them in half. Slice the halves lengthwise into thin pieces
- Preheat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat
- Fry the pieces until browned and tender
- Drain excess oil on paper towels
Yum! Plaintains ready to eat
