We start with the ketchup, as it takes a considerable cooking time. Although once all the ingredients are in the casserole, you just have to let them cook slowly.
Peel and chop the onion. We cut the peppers into julienne strips and the carrots into thin slices. Sauté in a saucepan with a little extra virgin olive oil until the onion picks up brownish colorThis way the sauce will have more flavor.
Add the tomatoes, washed and chopped, and simmer, stirring occasionally, for an hour. Blend and return to the fire to cook over low heat for another hour. We salt and we take a Pinch of sugar if we find it very acidic.
We prepare rice in the preferred way. We usually do it in the microwave, it is more comfortable than in a saucepan over the fire. Each master has its own booklet, so use your main recipe or any of ours: the classic one, in a pressure cooker or in the microwave.
We cut the banana in half, along. Heat abundant olive oil in a frying pan and fry it on both sides, over high heat. Be careful with over time or it will disintegrate in the pan, especially if it is ripe. We withdraw and reserve.
We take advantage of the same pan to fry the eggs, which should be room temperature so they don’t splash. To form its famous lace the temperature of the oil must be high and it is advisable not to touch them once inside. In less than a minute they will be ready to remove and plate.
Now it only remains to add the rice (to make the mound we use a cup as a mold), top it with the tomato sauce, add the fried banana and immediately enjoy this classic dish of Spanish households. Bon appétit.
