  1. Peel and dice plantain into tiny round shapes and sprinkle with salt.
  2. Heat oil in a pan and fry the plantain until they are golden or brown; drain from the oil and set aside.
  3. Place an empty pan on a stove, add about 2 tablespoons of cooking oil to it, add onions and garlic and sauté for 1 minute.
  4. Add the fried meat and stir fry for few minutes, followed with bell peppers.
  5. Season with curry, thyme, dry pepper, 1 stock cube and a pinch of salt to taste. Beat eggs in another bowl, transfer the content in the frying pan into the egg. ( should be done when contents are cool)
  6. Place an empty pan on the stove, smear or rub melted butter or oil to coat the inside of the pan…
  7. Then pour in the contents into d frying pan and add the already fried plantains by placing them on top of the egg mixture till it covers the whole pan.

Leave a little spot in the middle where u add a little bell peppers to give it a beautiful look.  Make sure u cover the pan with its cover or if you don’t have a lid, use a foil for that.

  1. Cook on a low heat for complete 20-25 minutes… As at then, do not in any way open the lid till the cooking is done.
