Instructions
 

  • Start by preparing the plantains. Wash thoroughly, then peel the skin off and cut into desired shape and size, season with some salt and set aside.
  • Next, heat up 2 cups of vegetable oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Gently drop the plantain pieces into oil and fry till golden brown. Set aside
  • In a skillet, heat up 2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium heat, sauté onions for about 30 seconds, then add minced garlic and sauté for a further 10 seconds or until fragrant
  • Then add the chopped tomatoes and scotch bonnet peppers and simmer gently for 3-4 minutes or until juices of tomatoes are all dried out.
  • Next, add the chopped sausage, curry powder, thyme, seasoning cube, ground pepper and salt to taste. Leave to cook for another 3 minutes.
  • Next, add the chopped sausage, curry powder, thyme, seasoning cube, ground pepper and salt to taste. Leave to cook for another 3 minutes.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs and season with some salt. Then add sautéd vegetables and sausage, stir to combine.
  • If you are using the oven method, pour the egg mixture into a 10-inch greased baking pan or casserole dish.
  • Afterwards, lay the fried plantains gently on top of the egg mixture. You can garnish with some more bell pepper strips at the centre for a pop of colour.
  • Bake in a 350 degrees F pre-heated oven for about 25-30 minutes or until mixture is firm in the centre.
  • After baking, allow to cool off completely before serving.
  • If you are using the gas cooker method, pour the egg mixture into a 10-inch greased frying pan.
  • Lay the fried plantains gently on top of egg mixture. You can garnish with some more bell pepper strips at the centre for a pop of colour.
  • Place a frying pan on the gas cooker and set the heat to the lowest. Cover the frying pan with a fitted lid and allow it to cook slowly. This will take about 10-15 minutes. At first it will look like it is not forming but just be patient and allow the low heat to do its magic. Don’t be tempted in any way to turn up the heat, you will not like the outcome.

Notes

Note- Sauté is just a fancy french word for stir frying stuff in very small amount of hot oil
