I told you, I am now enjoying myself taking a trip to the wet market to buy fruits and veggies. The other day, I bought saging na saba (plantain). It cost P2.00 each and I bought 20 pieces. I thought of cooking it for merienda.
My son love the crunchy maruya which I made from four pieces of banana. I put half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder and half a teaspoon of baking powder on the batter before frying. Son said it is better than a burger :) The cinnamon gave it that extra twist. It was so yummy.
I boiled some and used a few pieces for our nilaga, the P40 is really worth it. I also made ginatang saging, kamote and gabi. You can also boil it and add sugar and tapioca pearls. Where could you find something this cheap and enjoy several ways of preparing it? It’s a comfort food and it is nutritious too. According to studies made, eating raw plantain reduces weight.
