hown to make Plantain Pies (with Over-ripe Plantains)

Some time prior, 9jafoodie shared a formula she arranged: Asun, served in adorable Plantain Calabash. I decided there and after that that I should make those or something like it. What's more, Plantain Pies were conceived.

Plantain Pie Ingredients 

  • For 12 Plantain Pies, you'll require: 

  • For the batter 

  • 1 over-ready plantain 

  • 300g/10.5oz. plain flour (generally useful flour) 

  • 125g/4.4oz. spread (NOT margarine) 

  • 1 teaspoon preparing powder (discretionary) 

  • ½ teaspoon salt 

For the filling 

  • Any sustenance thing that runs well with plantains (particularly broiled plantains) will make an awesome filling for Plantain Pies. That is the reason I called them Plantain Pies and not Yam Pies. So don't hesitate to utilize beans porridge, egg omelet and so on as your filling. 
  • 200g/7oz. white puna yam 
  • 2 eggs 
  • 1 onion 
  • A little bit of red pepper 
  • Salt (to taste) 

Instruments you'll have to prepare Plantain Pies 

  • 3.75-inch (9.5cm) treat cutter 
  • 3-inch (7.5cm) treat cutter 
  • Biscuit plate with 12 glasses 
  • Broiler, sifter, spatula, brush, moving pin and so forth 

More data about the fixings 

  • Heating powder is discretionary in light of the fact that I made this pie with and without preparing powder, I didn't see any distinction in the taste and surface. 
  • Put some spread aside to grease the biscuit plate mugs. 

Before you get ready Plantain Pie

  • Peel and cook the yam till well done then set aside to chill off totally. 
  • Cut the onions and red pepper into little pieces. 
  • At the point when the yam has chilled off, cut into little solid shapes. 


  • The batter

  • Peel the over ready plantain and crush with a fork. Put aside.

  • Filter half of the flour, the salt and the preparing powder into a spotless dry bowl.

  • Cut the margarine into little pieces. Add them to the flour and blend till the spread is consolidated into the flour.
  • Include the crushed plantain. Blend with a spatula till as smooth as would be prudent. You will see that it is very sticky.
  • Begin including the second 50% of the flour in little amounts, blend with the plantain and flour mixture, include more, blend ... till you get a non-sticky however delicate chunk of mixture. On the off chance that you don't accomplish this with the amount of flour I expressed, include more flour till you get that. In a perfect world the amount of flour you'll require relies on upon how overripe your plantain is.
  • When you are cheerful, cover the chunk of batter with aluminum thwart and leave to rest for around 10 minutes.

  • Rehash the procedure till you have lined the 12 measures of the biscuit plate.
  • Scoop the filling into each of the containers. Abandon some egg in the bowl; you'll require it for coating the pies.
  • Reveal the rest of the mixture and cut with the 3-inch treat cutter. Utilize these to cover each of the filled glasses.
  • Utilizing a brush, rub the highest point of the pies with the remaining egg from the filling. This gives the pie a brilliant dark colored look when done.
