The cold weather is slowly creeping in. According to game of thrones, Winter is coming, I think it is almost here!!!. For Lunch I wanted to have something warm with a little bit of sauce in it. I thought of my grandmother and remembered her delicious Unripe plantain porridge chuck full of tasty goodness. Full of little pieces of chopped meat, fish and other scrumptious bits of goodness.
Today I revamped her famous dish and made it in my own style. Unripe plantain is a healthy source of carbohydrate and sodium which regulates body fluid, relives muscle cramps and many more.
This is quick and easy to make and is perfect for Lunch or an early dinner
