Delightful Mixed Matoke Recipe

Delightful Mixed Matoke

Today I share a meal that in many ways is a delicacy to us guys in East Africa. Matoke (or Matooke) refer to the plantain or plantain banana in Uganda, where plantains are a staple crop. In Uganda, plantain bananas are often wrapped in plantain leaves and steamed until tender. This dish can be made with or without the meat.
