- 45 g (1 1/2 oz.) onions or shallots
- 30 g (1 oz.) celery
- 1 1/2 cloves garlic, minced
- 30 ml (2 tbsp.) vegetable oil
- 1 tbsp. sugar

  1. Peel the plantains and chop all the vegetables.
  2. Heat the oil in a large pot. Add the shallots, celery, garlic and ginger and sauté until golden brown.
