  • Author: Ashley Thomas


  • 2 raw green plantains, peel and cube
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon black mustard seeds
  • 2 serrano peppers, slit but keep in tact
  • 1 inch fresh ginger, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1012 curry leaves
  • handful of unsweetened grated coconut (I use the brand Daily Delight fresh frozen grated coconut found)


  1. Put the cubed plantains in a pot with 1 cup of water, turmeric and salt. Cook on medium heat for 5 minutes or until soft. Drain water from the pot.
  2. Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When they start to splutter, add the serrano pepper, ginger, garlic and curry leaves.
  3. Add the cooked plantain pieces and grated coconut to the pan and mix together.
