How to fry Jamaican bammy


The traditional method of preparing bammy for frying is to soak it into cow's milk and not coconut milk.

To fry bammy
2 large bammy, cut into medium pieces
1 cup cow's milk
Oil for frying
Skillet or Dutch pot
Put the bammy pieces into a small bowl and pour the milk all over them, let them remain in the milk for 10 minutes.


Put a skillet or Dutch pot to hot over low flames, add the cooking oil. Fry the bammy pieces until lightly brown in colour (5-6 minutes)
To get rid of excess oil, drain on paper towel. Best served warm with fried or steamed fish, however, it goes well with anything.


To steamed bammy
Do not soak bammy into milk. Pour 1/2 cup of water into a Dutch pot or skillet with cover. Add the bammy or bammy pieces as soon as the water begins to boil, cover the pot and steam the bammy for 2 minutes
Variation:  Flavoured bammy
You can add 1 tbsp. butter or margarine and 1 clove garlic (mashed) to the pot, then cover and steam the bammy for 2 minutes

Bake bammy
Put the bammy or bammy pieces in to roasting or baking pan. Drizzle with 1 tbsp. Olive oil. Put 1 tsp. of grated Mozzarella cheese on each bammy or bammy pieces. Cover roasting or baking pan with  foil paper, put into the oven and bake for  15 minutes at lowest oven temperatures.
