Here is another fun dish to company a delicious hot black tea, plain without cream or sugar. A perfect match for afternoon tea! Last winter (January), after returning home from visiting my home-town (Jakarta) with the snow that covered Tri-Cities, my mind was wandering off to the warm, sunny, bright-blue skied Jakarta and voila! I made this delicious dish to heal 'the blue'...
- 2 big Plantain, ripened (choose dark yellow skin with some black blemish) - or 4 small ones.
- Grated cheese (baby cheddar) or if you wish; young coconut: grated length-wise.
- Chocolate Rice
- Margarine to sear the plantain
- If you're using the long/bigger plantains, cut them into half, then slice length-wise, into ¼ inch thin. If you're using the smaller plantain, then slice ¼ inch thin without cutting into half.
- Heat pancake griddle then add about a tablespoon of margarine. Then arrange the sliced plantains on the griddle.
- Turn them once the side is gold-brownish. Add margarine occasionally to keep the griddle well-greased.
- Remove from the heat.
- Arrange on a serving dish, while still hot; spread grated cheese on them (or the grated coconut), followed with chocolate rice.
- Serve while hot.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Plantains, here is a quick note about Plantain
