Mums do you know that nothing can be exciting as knowing that you can make something special out of your everyday ingredients? Who else is ditching the easy-to-fix dodo (fried ripe plantain) and egg for this wonderful meal? You can make this balance diet with yam or potatoes.


3 pcs plantain

2 cups groundnut

2 pcs pepper

2 pcs tomato

12 pcs shrimps

1 tbsp tomato paste

1 pcs onion

1 scoop tomatoes puree

1 scoop vegetable oil

1 tbsp crayfish

1 pc seasoning cubes

1 tsp salt


  • Firstly, chop the onion, tomatoes and pepper. Also, grind the groundnut to fill 1 cup.
  • Bring 2 cup of water to boil in a medium pot and add the onions, chopped tomato, tomato puree, pepper, crayfish, seasoning cube ans salt.
  • Wash and peel the plantain (preferably half ripe plantain) then cut into desired size. Add the plantain and shrimps into the pot and cook for about 10-15 minutes or until the plantain is soft. This depends on the size of the plantain chunk.
  • Dissolve the groundnut in little water and add it into the pot. Add the oil and stir. Adjust the seasoning if necessary then lower the heat and simmer for about 5 minutes. Add water if necessary to improve consistency. If you are using aubergine, chop and add at this stage.
  • Serve warm.
