Uganda is known for the Matoke in peanut sauce meal and the dish has become a favourite in many Kenyan households. It is not only easy to prepare but the ingredients are also easy to source.
To make this dish you will need:
- Unripe bananas
- Raw Peanuts
- 2 large onions
- 2 large tomatoes
- Garam Masala
- Turmeric and Cayenne/Paprika
- Salt to taste
- Peel and boil the bananas for about 15 minutes. Alternatively, if you want to prevent the sap from sticking to your hands YouTuber Milly Chebby from the ‘Ordinary Kitchen’ has a hack for you.
- Cut the top and bottom parts from the banana then make a tiny slit along the length of the banana.
- Boil the bananas for about 20 mins but keep on checking on them to avoid overcooking.
- When the bananas have boiled, cool them in cold running water and peel them, the skin will slip right off.
- Blend the tomatoes together with half a piece of Knorr Beef Cube.
- Blend the nuts using the miller part of the blending machine and if you don’t have a blender, use peanut butter.
- Fry the onions until they have caramelized, add the tomato and salt and allow to cook for a while.
- Add Garam Masala, Turmeric, and Cayenne/Paprika depending on how much heat you like.
- Add the blended peanut and allow it to cook for a while. Garnish with dhania and enjoy with some greens like spinach or traditional vegetables.
