Hullop! No one has asked me to make food lately but, everyone miss me for not making sumptuous recipes. Since it was a bright afternoon, I put together all my recovered energy from malaria which struck me down and thought of how to make the best noodle recipe with scentleaf and plantain like a super chef.
Yes! I garnished noodles with plantain-not fried plantain as in dodo nor plantain chips-and the noodles came out absolutely fabulous that you definitely do not want to not try it.

However, at first preparation, I must confess that the meal tasted of too much seasonings. Hence, I took it back to the kitchen, transferred into the sauce pan and added about 1/2 cup of water which re-cooked the meal properly and made it perfect.
See recipe below.
Clove Basil Noodles
While boiling water, wash and dice the pepper, onion and plantain. Chop properly cleaned scent leaves (efinrin) and set aside.
Place noodles inside a bowl and pour the boiled water over it. Ensure the noodles is adequately covered by the water. Set aside to soak for 7minutes.
Set saucepan on cooker, add 1 serving spoon of vegetable oil, allow to heat.
When hot, fry onions for 2 minutes, add the pepper, plantain, noodles condiments and black pepper. Allow to fry for additional 2 minutes and then, add the chopped leaves. Stir sauce and leave to fry for just 1 minute.
Within that time, strain parboiled noodles, set water aside and pour just the noodles into the fried sauce.
Stir until properly mixed, add 1/2cup of water and cover to cook till water is all absorbed.
Serve hot and enjoy with a cup of juice.
