I am from the Ibo speaking part of Delta State and ukpo- ogede or plantain pudding is one of our traditional meals.Adding a lot of pepper with some Red Kidney Beans puts a whole new twist to this meal.It's very delicious.Other tribes add corn to it but this is the delta version.

Ingredients-
1-Very ripe plantain blended to a pulp
2-unripe plantain flour
3-Palm oil
4-Fresh tomatoes,pepper,onions and crayfish
6-Red Kidney Beans(You can get this at the supermarket or grocery store)
Salt to taste
The listed ingredients can be adjusted to one's personal taste but the blended ripe plantain and the plantain flour should be of equal or nearly equal proportions.


Method
Set a pot with a low level of water on heat.Prepare your wrappers.If you can't use the traditional leaves,you can use little plastic containers or little nylon bags to wrap your pudding.
Blend ripe plantain with tomatoes,pepper,crayfish and onions to a soft consistency with water  and set aside
In a deep bowl,mix plantain flour with palm oil thoroughly, add blended mixture and mix together.
Add salt to taste and lastly add the red kidney beans.
Mix very well and scoop into the containers or little nylon bags.
Note that the consistency should be slightly thicker than that of moin-moin.
Cook for 30 to 40 minutes.
You can tell it's cooked when it's colour changes to a dark brown.
Enjoy

@uk dream, when you say red kidney beans is it cooked? or uncooked? or is it the beans flour you refer to? i suppose you mean the normal beans we eat in Nigeria?

@op, Ukdream have given u the right ingredients and procedure. The red kidney beans is the one u normally add to salad but u can omit it if u like. The flour is not beans flour, it MUST be unripe plantain flour; u can buy it in the market just like u buy your semovita or yam flour or better still u can prepare yours if u have the time.
The plantain flour should be more than the ripe blended plaintain that way after it is done, it will be a well solidified and taste well. [b][/b]DO NOT ADD MEAT, FISH OR EGGS.
It was just two days ago we started drying unripe plantain pieces for grinding. Probably by weekend i will make plantain pudding (ukpo ogede).

Plantain pudding is a very rich and delicious food.
Re: Pls Help With Ukpo-ogede Recipe! by jovi: 2:43pm On May 21, 2012
Thanks @ preet cindy>..my question was probably lost in translation grin..what i meant to ask is if the kidney beans is added as the delta versio above says to add after blending the other ingredients>>>so i guess it should not be blended with the other stuff...Thanks
Re: Pls Help With Ukpo-ogede Recipe! by PrettyCindy(f): 9:46pm On May 23, 2012
Yes, it shouldn't be blended.
Re: Pls Help With Ukpo-ogede Recipe! by tpia5: 1:34am On May 25, 2012
