If this is banana porridge then why does the recipe call for plantain and not bananas. As for the method you can eliminate the boiling for 20 minutes step just peel the bananas and blend them in a little water, then cook for a few minutes. That's how i do it. There are other spices you can add like cinnamon stick or mace.
