    • 1 pack Sympli African Ripe plantan
    • 4 medium tomatoes
    • 4 small fresh red peppers
    • 2 medium red bell peppers
    • 1 medium sized onion bulb

Add 6 cups of water to a pot and set on medium heat. Wash beans thoroughly to rid it of excess dirt and place in a pot of boiling water.

Next, add tomato, red bell peppers, fresh red pepper, onion and garlic in a food processor or blender. Blitz for 30 seconds on medium speed till a not-so-smooth purée is formed.

Heat up palm oil in a small pot and add blended purée. Stir gently and leave to fry on medium heat for 5-7 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent burning.

When beans is 80% cooked, add fried blended purée and all other ingredients. Stir gently and leave to cook until beans it is soft. Add water if more is required.

In a mixing bowl, add Knorr African ripe plantain and salt to taste, mix thoroughly to combine.

Next, gently drop ripe plantain piece after piece into the hot oil with a cooking tong but be careful not to over crowd the pan. Fry on both sides for 3-4 minutes or until lightly browned.

Serve fried Knorr plantain and beans side by side.

CAUTION: The oil may bubble and pop out of the fryer. Place only one piece at a time into the hot oil. Fry only moderate amounts of frozen food at a time, making sure to remove freezer burn or any excess ice before cooking. If frozen pieces get stuck together, they should be allowed to defrost slightly and then broken up before inserting into hot oil. DO NOT LEAVE UNATTENDED WHEN FRYING.
