matoke with beans (Katogo, green bananas with beans)

Matoke is typically Ugandan, we practically grew up on matoke. It is still a family favorite, there are various ways of cooking it, this is my favourite. I made this on Monday evening.

Ingredients

4 - 5 matoke (green bananas from Uganda)
1 400g can red kidney beans
1 200g can peeled tomatoes
2 cloves garlic - minced
1 inch ginger - grated
2 chillis - minced
1 table spn vegetable oil
1 tspn mustard seeds
1/2 tspn tumeric
2 teaspoons coriander/cumin mix
salt to taste

Method
1. Peel the green bananas and place in cold water, (otherwise they discolour).
2. Heat oil in a pan, add the mustard seeds, as soon as they start to splutter, add the tomatoes, garlic, ginger and the minced chillis, stir and fry for a few minutes.



3. Add the cumin, coriander and tumeric, fry for a few minutes. Add the bananas and the beans
and mix so that the vegetables are coated with the mixture.


4. Add one cup water and salt and cook for 20 minutes

serve with chapati or rice
