Kabalagala Banana Pancakes, using plantains (gonja)

Making Kabalagala pancakes using gonja (plantains)

True Ugandan kabalagala banana pancakes are made using “ndizzi” bananas (as they are called in some regions of Uganda), but what do you do if you are in a place where you have none, but lots of “plantains”, known in Uganda as “gonja”? I tried it and in my opinion, they taste more like the “real thing” than with other banana types found in some places. The recipe & especially video, though illustrate how to make Kabalagala with or without ndizzi.
