Sweet Plantain Frittata

This is a simple dish with just a handful of ingredients but it tastes really great . In our place there are a lot of dishes made with these basic three ingredients and everything is quite popular . This particular dish is my son's favourite , he just loves it , if he could he would have it for all the three meals . It is perfect for breakfast or you can have it as a snack too , it is quite simple to make so here goes........


3 large ripe plantains
4 large eggs
4 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp flour
a handful of cashews or raisins ( optional )
oil for frying


Peel and cut the plantains into cubes
Deep fry the plantain cubes till golden brown  and drain on absorbent paper
In a blender , blend the eggs , sugar and the flour
Pour the egg mix in a 10 inch baking dish
Top it with the fried plantain , cashews and raisins if using any
Bake in a preheated 180 c oven for about 20 min or till the top is firm
