'Etor' is a traditional Ghanaian dish made from mashed boiled yam, plantain, or cocoyam and palm oil in southern Ghana. To garnish it, I like to use groundnuts, eggs, and avocado pear.
I make 'etor' with slightly ripe and unripe plantain because it adds sweetness to the dish; ripe plantain is naturally sweet, but you can also make it with only plantain. My younger sister was the one who taught me.
1. Plantain or yam
5. Roasted groundnuts or peanuts
6. Palm oil
8. Avocado pear
1. Peel the plantain and boil it (add salt).
2. In an earthenware bowl, wash the onion and pepper and grind them together, adding salt as needed to achieve an even mixture.
3. Grind in the groundnuts (peanuts).
4. Boil the eggs
5. Mash the boiled plantain in the earthenware bowl with the ground pepper, onion, and groundnuts.
6. In a sauce pan, heat the palm oil and add the chopped onions.
7. Pour the palm oil into the mashed plantain and stir until it is evenly distributed.
8. Serve with boiled eggs, avocado pear, groundnuts, and chopped onions as garnish.
