Mangu de Platano Maduro (Mashed Yellow Plantains)

This plate is not something fancy but its something i love to eat. Since i was young my grandmother always made me this for breakfast. Its very common in the Dominican Republic. Some people use green platains, i rather use yellow since its sweeter. You can eat Platano Maduro (Yellow Platains) with different things. For example, Salami, Ham, Etc. I chose cheese and boiled eggs.

Ingredients: Yellow Platain Salt Hot Water Butter

Optional ingredients :

Eggs Cheddar Cheese

- Instuctions :

Boil hot water for a minute. If your going to boil eggs its best to put the egg in the water first, since it takes longer. Add salt to the water. While the water is boiling, Peel the yellow platain and cut it into pieces then put it in the pot with hot water. Wait about 10 to 15 minutes then check if the platains are cooked enough, if they are take them out. I prefer them mashed, Start mashing them and adding butter to it. After its mashed evenly you may add anything you want to the side. I used boiled egg and cheddar cheese. Its a simple and delicious dish especially when you want something fast. Try it !
