For our newbies, the KFB foodie talk column - handled by Dobby of Dobbysignature - is basically for ladies and 'guys' that are interested in learning how to cook better ;)
Today's recipe is 'Sweet Plantain Empandasa :) 
Sweet, savory plantain empanadas are a delight for the whole fam every single time i make it. I've always loved plantain (Duh! abeg who doesn't?) but making empanadas with yummy fillings is a whole different ball game entirely. The good thing about plantain empanadas is you can fill it with just about anything. For this to turn out really nice, you'd need ripe plantain. 
What i usually do is to make plantain empanadas and store in the refrigerator and whenever anyone is ready, all the person has to do is to bring them out of the fridge and fry for breakfast, lunch or dinner. if you have a party, you can even serve plantain empanadas as an appetizer. Empanadas are best eaten warm and freshly fried with hot pepper sauce like ata din din served with hot or cold cup of beverage by the side. 

How to make plantain empanadas
• Yield:  
  8 small empanadas
• Serves:  3 - 4 as a snack

•3 Medium sized ripe plantain 
• Salt to taste 
• Water 

For the filling:::
• 200g beef or minced meat
• ½ small onion – diced 
•1 tsp. Chili powder 
• 1 Seasoning cube 
• Salt to taste 
• 3 cups Vegetable oil for deep frying

Step 1: If you don't have where to buy minced meat, you could also grind your meat.This is really easy to do if you have a mincer, Grinder/ food processor. It also saves a whole lot of stress and money. 
To start, Wash the meat thoroughly with clean water then slice off the elastic muscles with a sharp Knife. Most times the grinder is not able to grind this part of the meat. Dice the meat into smaller chunks and place in the grinder - Grind. To skip this process, simply get minced meat.

Step 2: Steam the minced meat in a separate pot for 10 minutes with a cup of water and salt to taste. In a pan, heat up 2 tbsps. Vegetable oil for 2 minutes. Add the dice onion, steamed minced meat, chili powder. Sprinkle with salt and crushed seasoning and stir fry for about 5 minutes. Turn off the burner and set aside.

Step 3: Wash and cut the plantains into about 3 pieces each. Place in a medium sized pot and add water. Boil for about 15 minutes till soft. Remove the skin from the boiled plantain and mash the plantain with a fork

Step 4: Roll out the mashed plantain with a rolling pin on a flat surface and cut out circles using a circle cutter. Place about a tbsp. of minced meat in each circle cut outs and fold (like meat pie)
Pre-heat the oil in a pan and Drop the plantain empanadas into it, one at a time making sure you do not crowd the pan. Fry until golden brown.

Remove from the oil and drain on a paper towel. Serve as a snack.


Revenge is a Poison meant for others, which we end up swallowing ourselves. Vengence is a Dark Light that blinds all who seek it. Don’t argue with Idiots.. They will bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

YOU CAN SKIP THIS PART(short joke)...

A young couple moved into a new neighbourhood. The next morning while eating breakfast, the young woman saw her neighbour through the window hanging the wash outside.

"That laundry is not clean," she said. "She doesn't know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap".

Her husband looked on, but remained silent. Every time the neighbour would hang laundry to dry, the young woman would make the same

About one month later, the woman was surprised to see nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband: "Look, she has learnt how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught her this!"

The husband replied: "I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows."

And so it is with life.

What we see when watching others depends on the purity of the window through which we look.

Easy to discuss other people, their lives and things that don't really concern us.

Yet we tend to forget- our window isn't that clean after all.

Clean up your window with the WORD! (THE TRUTH.)

LORD, please give us the strength, humility and courage that we may work on our faults first rather than seeing the faults in Others and castigating them.

Have a beautiful Week !
