Plantain Scotch Eggs
Recipe for Plantain Scotch Eggs
1 finger of Ripe plantain
2 teaspoons of Suya powder
1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
1/2 seasoning cube
1/ teaspoon of grated ginger
1/2 cup of Bread crumbs
2 teaspoons of Couscous (optional)
Oil for frying
Boil 2 of your eggs for about 5-7 minutes.
Place in cold water for about 2 minutes and peel the egg and set aside.
Boil your plantain till soft and mash while hot.
Add your seasoning cube, ginger, black pepper and 1 teaspoon of suya powder to the plantain and combine thoroughly.
In a separate bowl, whisk the last egg and set aside.
Using a flat plate, mix the couscous with the breadcrumbs and 1 teaspoon of suya powder and set aside. (I mixed cous cous because I liked the extra crunch. You can use garri as well)
Take your egg and scoop a little of the plantain mash and mould the eggs lightly. Rub some vegetable oil on your hands so the plantain doesn’t stick to your hands as much.
When you have moulded lightly, dip the plantain egg ball in the whisked egg and then roll in the breadcrumbs and set aside.
Heat up your vegetable oil for deep frying and when it’s hot, place your plantain scotch eggs and fry till golden brown.
I find its best to consume this when its not straight from the pot. Allow it rest a bit but whilst staying warm serve with hot sauce.
