PEANUT BUTTER MATOKE

Woohoo! So excited about today’s recipe. It’s matoke! I have always wanted to cook matoke, I don’t know if it is laziness or I just had not gotten the matoke. This recipe is made by special bananas, which are longer than normal ones. But you can cook this recipe with normal ones, though they will not be called matoke. I wanted to add more taste so I decided to add peanut butter for some creaminess and get a thick gravy. Traditionally matoke is cooked by Ugandans where it is served with homemade peanut sauce. The matoke is cooked with whole bananas. Very delicious. I have had it at a function. You can even add coconut milk for more taste and aroma. The peanut butter matoke had no left overs, that is how delicious it was, looking foward to making more matoke guys.
