Hmmmmm…we are almost there.
Coat frying pan with cooking spray or melted butter or vegetable oil. Then pour the egg mixture into the frying pan.
It is important that you coat your pan. Please don’t forget!
Burst of colors!!!
Lay the fried plantain gently on top of the egg mixture and cover the frying pan with a lid and place on low heat, leave to cook for 20 minutes. It is important that you cover the frying pan with a lid and your heat is set to the lowest so that the frittata doesn’t burn.
Please ensure you cover the pan with a lid.
From the lid, you can see that the egg mixture is starting to firm up.
When it is completely firmed up, especially in the center, take off the lid and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
