Fancy spicy food? Then, this one’s for you, introducing, “spicy green banana mash”. The mash is made from Matooke, a staple ingredient of East Africa. It is popularly relished as a spicy mashed delicacy, Matooke are not the regular unripe green bananas you see. They are usually cooked with tomatoes (or you can use tomato paste as an alternative), Indian spices, and butter (oops! we’re salivating).
