  1. In a food processor, process the plantain with a dash of water and the ginger until smooth.

  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a mixing bowl.

  3. Add the plantain mixture and mix into a soft dough.

  4. Shape your dumplings into medium-sized rounds with a little flour on the side for dusting. It’s important they don’t get too wet and sticky, so just add a little more flour if they do not appear to be dry enough to work with.

  5. Heat a little oil in a heavy-based frying pan and shallow-fry the cakes in batches until heated all the way through and deep golden on all sides. You can keep the cooked cakes warm in the oven while you work on the next batch.

  6. Serve with ackee and salt fish., boiled eggs, avocado and lime wedges.
