Im Nigerian. I had 2 large ripe plantains at home and thought what I can do with these apart from slicing them and frying them in oil like I normally do.I cam across this recipe and I must say its easy straight forward and really yummy. However i did a few things differently, i did not use a food processor as i dont own one therefore i used a pestle and mortar to mash the plantains, then i blended the onions with a little bit of water in a blender and added it to the plantain mixture. i like spice and colour in my food so i chopped up some chillies finely along with some spring onion/scallions and added it to the mixture. I gave it 4 stars only because i think more salt is required and probably less blended onion as husband said it was too oniony for him.
BEING THAT I'M PUERTO RICAN, I LOVE EATING FRIED PLANTANOS (PLANTAINS.) I THOUGHT THIS WOULD BE INTERESTING TO TRY AND IT WAS. BUT NEXT TIME I WILL ADD 3-4 RIPE PLANTAINS TO THE RECIPE BECAUSE I LOVE THAT FLAVOR AND IT JUST WASN'T ENOUGH FOR ME. I ONLY USED A SMALL PEICE OF AN ONION BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT IT TO OVER POWER AND I WAS PERFECT, IT ADDED A NICE TASTE. SPRINKLED WITH A LITTLE SALT, COMPLIMENTS THE SLIGHTLY SWEET INSIDE. MY KIDS ENJOYED IT TOO!
