This was yummy; however we only prefered it freshly cooked. It was not nearly as good the next day. I actually could not get my hands on any plantains but had planned on preparing this recipe anyhow, so instead I used 2 underripe bananas and added them to the dish a mere 10 minutes before completion (since bananas cook much faster than plantains). I also used 2 TBS of curry powder rather than paste. Unique and delicious dish!
