• 1 inch of ginger root

• 2 bay leaves

• 1 small onions

• ½ tablespoon of rosemary spice

Procedure

• Now add the Plantain to cook with the meat, since it’s unripe it as well takes time to cook. Add water to be at the same level with the items in the pot. Allow to cook for about 20 mins or until both are almost soft.

• Add more water if required, pepper soup goes well with having enough water in it. Now you can add the pepper soup spice, ground pepper, the chopped fresh pepper and the rosemary spice. Allow it to cook till the goat meat and plantain is soft.
