Ingredients

2 Tbsp

2-3 tsp
curry powder, to taste
2 medium
firm bananas, peeled and sliced (or plantains if you prefer)
1/4 c
yellow onion, finely minced
1/4 c
almonds, sliced or slivered
3 c
hot cooked long grain white rice (i think basmati or a mix of long grain white and basmati would be really tasty!)
salt, to taste
2
scallions, sliced
1/4 clove
dried flaked or grated coconut, toasted
pinch
ground allspice (freshly ground if possible)

Step-By-Step

1Melt butter or coconut oil in a large skillet. Stir in the curry powder.

4Stir in the cooked rice; season with salt to taste. Heat through.
5Transfer the rice mixture to a serving bowl or platter. Arrange the browned banana slices on top. Garnish with scallions, toasted coconut and a pinch of ground allspice. Serve immediately.
