I watch a lot of videos from Tasty, Food Network and other individuals with food channels on YouTube and Facebook and, I like to try out new recipes but these haven’t always been success stories.
Recently in this lock down period, I saw a number of videos on how to make bread pudding and when I tried it first, the bread did not soak well in the mixture. I tried it the next day and the result was even worse than the first. It was so bad that nobody ate it and I had to get rid of it the next day.
I tried making puff-puff the other day (also from videos I had seen online) and the results wasn’t the best either. It did not rise like what I saw in the video and I was later advised to add baking powder.
The few success stories I have had in my kitchen (from watching online recipes) are in the preparation of pancakes and plantain fritatta.
To make plantain fritatta, the ingredients required include:
2 ripe plantains
6 eggs (depending on the number of people eating)
2 bell pepper,
2 large size fresh tomatoes,
A pinch of salt to taste,
Slices of onions.
In about about two table spoonful of oil, add slices of onions, bell pepper and tomatoes. Stir-fry till golden brown.
Deep-fry the ripe plantain separately.
Break the eggs into a bowl.
Cut and add your sausages to the eggs.
Add desirable quantity of cayenne pepper and salt
Pour the stir-fried vegetables into the egg mixture and whisk.
Oil your baking tin and pour the egg mixture into it.
Place the fried ripe plantain on top of the mixture.
Put the mixture into the oven and bake for 20 -30 minutes and that’s it.
Frittata is simple to prepare as the ingredients are easy to find, especially, in this lock down period. It can be eaten as a full meal or an accompaniment to a full meal. Try it and let me know what you think
