Its been a minute, and i do apologize. The thing is, outside of my blog life i do a lot of other things; i am making the best of my youth! :).
This doesn't mean i will never become a professional blogger with a perfect time table.. no no i would, i'm working hard towards it so just bare with me.
This dish felt like an African snack. Its really healthy, the sauce is pretty much vegetables and the plantains were cut, salted and placed on a baking tray.
Cameroon inspiration: Road side roasted plantains and plums..
Here's a picture of my friend Mona and her family enjoying the legendary "plantain and plum"..; that's what it looks like sold in the streets.
The Plantains: Peel them, cut them,and place them in a baking tray (salt if desired) . Set the oven to broil, once they brown up, flip them to the other side and set to broil again. Stay close to the oven.
The Sauce: Blend half an onion, 2 tomatoes and 3/4 of an eggplant in a blender, fry it in some oil like you'll do your regular tomato sauce.
The major difference is, we don't use any stock and u must use one bay leaf.
In another pan, place you dry fish and dry meat to boil or soften.
When your sauce is fully fried and dry, put in your boiled protein and set to low heat and let it simmer a little. Here are few photos from my process
