Plantain Futari

Futari Ya Ndizi Mzuzu

Most Africa countries prefer fried plantain; Tanzanian however we like to cook as a side dish with coconut mil, roast or just boil with water and salt. This is the way we like our plantain. I can eat this everyday.

1⁄2 cup chopped onions
1 tsp. cardamom powder

  • 1⁄2 tsp. salt

2 cups boiling water 
3 tbsp. vegetable or canola oil
