When i was going through the contents part of the cookbook, i actually thought this would be some indo chinese style recipe. But when i read the recipe, i was surprised to see a melange of flavors. I was instantly sure that this recipe would work like a charm with Mr.P and a couple other friends. The secret to getting this fabulous is cooking the raw plantain just right. If you overcook it, you will have a mush. So do take care while you cook the plantains. The original recipe uses mushrooms. But since we dont eat much mushrooms at home, i subbed them with raw plantains.
