How to make it

  • 1. Begin by making the sauce. In a small sauce pot add in all ingredients except the cayenne. Stir to combine and put it over medium heat and cover with lid.
  • 2. Start preheating the frying oil on medium heat.
  • 3. Peel and slice the green plantains. First I sliced the whole plantain into 1 inch pieces. Then slit a pathway on skin. Under running water I peel the skin off. Then slice into 1/2 inch pieces.
  • 4. By the time your finished peeling and slicing the plantains the oil will be ready. To test it put 1 slice of plantain in the oil. If the oil sizzles then it’s ready and add in the rest of the plantains. Cook for 10-12 minutes stirring occasionally.
  • 5. By this time your sauce will look a little like this. When it does lower heat down to the lowest, stir in the cayenne pepper and cover with lid.
  • 6. Once the plantain is crisp, golden brown, and cooked throughly remove from oil and drain oil on a double-lined paper towel in the bowl you’ll use to mash the plantains.
  • 7. Remove the paper towel and start mashing the plantains using a wooden masher or potato masher.
  • 8. Once plantains are flat add in the butter, fresh white cheese, scallions, and salt. Using gloves mix everything together until it becomes doughy and an even mixture.
  • 9. Divide mixture for serving and form balls. Serve immediately with any-style eggs and top it off with the tomato-scallion sauce. Enjoy!
  • Note:
  • This bolon can be a great side dish with chicken or beef.
