Okro Plantain Porridge

Ripe plantain porridge is the cooking of a delicious ripened or slightly ripened plantain.

This meal is usually prepared by dicing or slicing the ripe plantains, and cooking them with seasonings and salt, (although some people prefer to use sugar instead).

The use of palm oil or groundnut oil also depends on what is ideal for you.

Recipe for 3 servings:

  • 5 ripe plantains (peeled and diced)
  • 1 sizeable onion (diced).
  • 1 cooking spoon red oil or groundnut oil.
  • 3 tablespoon of crayfish.
  • 2 dry fish [deboned and cleaned]
  • 1 bunch basil leaf (shredded)
  • ½ cup of fresh okro [diced or sliced].
  • seasoning and salt to taste.


  • Wash and boil the plantain until tender.
  • While the plantain is cooking, add the salt, seasonings, crayfish, and onions.
  • Add the oil and dry fish and leave for another seven minutes; stir and add the okro and the shredded basil leaves.
  • Cover and simmer for two minutes.
  • Simmer again for another three minutes and serve hot.
