If you are ready to try this dish like I am, whip out your cooking utensils and let’s get cooking.



400 g dried split green peas, soaked overnight

4 ripe bananas

1/2 tsp salt

2 tbsp palm oil or groundnut oil with 2 tsp paprika

1 small onion, thinly sliced

Cooking Method:

Put peas into a pan and add water. Bring to boil and simmer for about 90 minutes.

Split green peas

When peas are tender, peel bananas and place them on top of the peas. Do not mix. Cook together in a pan for about 10 minutes until bananas are very soft. Add water if necessary so that the peas do not stick to the bottom of the pot.


Heat the palm oil in a large frying pan and add the onions until they become brown. With a slotted spoon, add the bananas and the peas to the palm oil mixture.

Palm oil

Add salt to taste. Cook over medium heat and continuously stir until all the oil has been absorbed.

Serve immediately.
