Food Fact: The plantain has been consumed as human food since prehistory. It tends to be firmer and lower in sugar content than the dessert bananas. Plantains are treated in much the same way as potatoes and with a similar neutral flavour and texture when the unripe fruit is cooked by steaming, boiling or frying.
The whole plantain can be steamed for a tasty breakfast dish or fried/ grilled with a little meet mirsang/ mangalore chilli paste as a snack to accompany drinks.
