1. In my spare time, I cook recipes from every nation. I was having trouble finding authentic ones from Sierra Leone, until I came across your site. I made this dish along with your jollof rice recipe, and had a fabulous dinner! I’m going to refer my vegetarian sister to your website because I know she will love these two recipes. Thanks from Northern California!

  2. Your recipe sounds really good! I need to save your website. Where do I find Scotch bonnet chili, or is that a UK item? Thanks. Nancy

    • Scotch bonnet chilis are a type of chili like jalapeno or bell. You can usually find them in specialty grocery stores or even the larger high end ones, like Whole Foods or Wegmans.

  3. I love veggie meals (even though I’m an omnivore!) so deffo want to try this. Question: I have never used plantain (always wanted to) so please could you give me any tips on buying/ cooking? I really want this to accompany the feast…

  4. Hi Bintu, I really enjoyed reading this recipe. Truth be told my mouth was flooded but I think the actual term is mouth watering when you mentioned all the good stuff from Sierra Leone. Cant wait to see more of your S.Leonean dishes.
