  1. Katogo: A traditional and heavy breakfast dish that can be eaten during the day, katogo consists of fried plantains or bananas with soup and beef, beans, or animal (cow, goat, chicken) offal spiced with vegetables. This meal is popular with Ugandans.

  3. Add the bananas and enough water to almost submerge the bananas. Let the katogo boil till the bananas are almost tender. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Once they start becoming tender, reduce the fire and let the katogo simmer. Remove from fire  and let cool. Serve with ghee, a side of greens and tea.
