This is a one-pot Cameroonian dish made with plantains, palm oil, smoked fish and other ethnic flavors. Traditionally, it is made when a woman has a new baby. Literally finger-licking good! Cameroonians has nicknamed the food in many ways. It is called “born house planti”, “porridge planti” or “turning planti.” There’s even another version known as “sese planti“. By the way, planti is short for plantain.

These plantains cooked in water and palm oil and loaded with ethnic flavors is one of my favorite one-pot dishes of all time. All you need to do is dump things in the pot and let them cook and you will be amazed at the results. The dish is colloquially called Sese Plantains in Cameroon. It is sometimes referred to as porridge plantains.
