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.
I like eating plantain Pudding. When I was home, each time Mummy goes to the market, this is one food she buys for us to eat before she would make the real meal.
The food tastes so sweet, you know the taste of ripe plantain right? It's so sweet.
