3. If cooked with either plantain, yam or potatoes, please add in the plantain, yam or potato when the peppersoup spice is being cooked.

4. Ensure the cooking time is a little longer than 10 mins so the plantain, yam or potatoes can be properly cooked. You can also make sure of pre-boiled yam, plantains or potatoes to avoid overcooking the proteins.
