3 Ripe Plantain Banana
2 cups water
1 1/2 cups Coconut milk
1/8 tsp (2 pinches) ground cardamom
The blacker the Plantain the better! The softer they are the more sweet they are. BUT yellow, like this one, works too(it just has to boil longer to get soft and more sugar to sweeten the recipe).
Peel plantains.Make sure to scrape the banana, to remove stringy banana bits.
Or alternatively cut into the skin and outer flesh of the plantain.
Cut Plantain in half and then half again. Cut plantain length wise to expose seeds.
Remove seeds and core (It is hard and unpleasant in the sauce)
Boil in 2 cups of water for 10 minutes.
Add coconut milk, sugar and cardamom.
Reduce heat and let simmer for 15 minutes.
Or until you have a creamy consistency.
Serve with Coconut Rice or Chapati or on its own.
