Ingredients for Noodle Fritters

How to Prepare
Pour some water into a clean pot and set it to boil on medium heat. When it comes to the boil, drop the noodles into the pot to cook.
While the noodles are cooking, peel, rinse and dice the onions. Rinse and dice the green bell pepper and the scotch bonnet pepper separately. Set all diced ingredients aside for later use.
Check the noodles. If it has softened, then transfer it into a sieve to drain the water.

Peel and dice the plantain. Sprinkle salt on the plantain and toss to ensure even distribution.

Break the eggs into a clean bowl. Add diced onions, fresh pepper, thyme, a pinch of stock cube seasoning and salt to the eggs. Whisk them together.
