MY FAVORITE LOCAL DISH -- HIVE LEARNERS CONTEST FOR WEEK 3 EDITION 3

Where are you from? What is your local dish? Would you mind sharing with us so we can learn how to make and eat it? This is my favourite local dish. In English language, it is called plantain Pudding. But in my dialect, it is called Ukpo- Ogede. It is eaten by my people from Ika North East, Delta State

It is made with two types of plantains. A ripe one and unripe. The recipe is simple and the food is very delicious. In a bit, I will take you through the steps.

It is something very new for me. I would like to eat it some day. Looking soooooo delicious. The step by step guide with images makes cooking easier.

I wanna know one thing though. What do you add as seasonings? And is there any special kind of leaves that we are supposed to use for wrapping?

In my country Nigeria, we have leaves for wrapping food. That is the one to use. Otherwise, some leaves go very soft or attempt to melt when to hey stay long in boiling water. But when the leaf meant for wrapping is used, 45 minutes or even two hours boiling has no effect on it.
There are different seasoning, I use different types depending on the food. Here in Nigeria, we have a blend of different dry leaves/spices that forms seasoning ( e.g I have at home, a blend of cumin,flax seed, fenugreek, bassil, cadamon,rosemary,ginger,garlic, black seed,currianda and cynamon). All in one. I use it in little quantity. We also have Knorr cubes, maggi cubes, ama wonder, kitchen glory etc as seasonings here in Nigeria.
What do you use?

Wow, I just learnt this. I eat it ordinarily. Now I know it can be used to eat rice and custard. It surely will make sense in both meals

I have had this meal before, and it was simply outstanding. Very delicious, especially when it is prepared by someone who really knows what they are doing. And I am sure you know what you are doing.
