How To Make Unripe Plantain Swallow

Did you know you can do a whole lot with plantain (both ripe & unripe)? From pottage to snacks to even Swallow. Yes you heard right, Swallow...That fufu like ball used for soups. Now plantain has been used in making "swallow" for quite a long time.
There are two ways to make plantain swallow a) with fresh plantain & b) with dried plantain flour. The freshly prepared plantain swallow tends to have a yellow colour when it's made but changes colour due to oxidation when it sits for a while & the plantain swallow made with plantain flour naturally has a brown colour when it's prepared. Unripe plantain contains a high nutritional value with moderate amount of calories, and this is why it's great for people on special diets such as diabetes, those watching their weight.

Step 1: Peel the plantain and chop into smaller bits. Place in a blender, add some water and blend till it forms a smooth paste. 

Step 2: Pour the blend into a medium sized pot and on medium heat, turn the plantain puree in the pot with a wooden spoon. Keep turning for about 3- 5 minutes till it thickens and your plantain swallow is ready. Scrape the plantain from the sides of the pot into the pot and add 1/2 cup of water. Cover the pot and let it cook for 3 minutes or until the water dries up. Mix with the wooden spoon and serve. 

Kitchen Notes:

Unripe plantain tends to turn brown when it sits for a while. This is quite normal and not dangerous. Browning is caused by it's oxidation with oxygen in the air.
