Ingredients: Fried Plantain and Egg

3 large plantains

5 large eggs

2 large tomatoes

1 bunch of spring onion

Vegetable oil

1/4 cup coil for egg frying

chicken flavor seasoning

a pinch of salt

crushed paper – quarter teaspoon


PREP and COOK TIME: 15 minutes


Start with Plantain:

Fill your deep fryer or frying pan vegetable and set it up to get ready for frying. The vegetable oil quantity depends on your fryer, the smaller the lesser quantity of frying oil need and if you are using a frying pan, oil as little as 1 cup would do the job perfectly.

Peel your plantain and slice. You can add 2 pinches of salts but it’s optional

Once the oil is hot enough to start frying, pour in the sliced plantain and let it fry for about 6 minutes.


Next is the Egg Frying Process.

Chop the spring onions

Slice the tomatoes

Break your egg into a bowl and whisk

Add ¼ cup of oil to the frying pan and set it on the stove.

Add the sliced tomatoes and chopped spring onion to it

Add ¼ teaspoon pepper to the frying, follow your preference for the pepper, I mean it depends on how tolerant you are to pepper.

Add ½ teaspoon seasoning and ¼ curry powder

Add a pinch of salt

Stir the frying pan mixture for about 2 minutes.

Then pour in your egg and turn gradually as it coagulates to form together.

Turn off your stove.

Now your fried plantain and egg are ready to be served.

You made it! Enjoy your meal and please come back again for more recipes.
