      Sorry about the mistake (Before starting to cook: Grate the plantains, malanga and yams).

    I'm confused about the mixture. The plantains, malanga and yam are grated and then you add seasoning powder,salt and pepper. What does the seasoning powder consist of? My other question is does the mixture get cooked at all before placing it on to the banana tree leaves?

    Thank you for the recipe I have been wanting to do this myself but had not come across the recipe before.

    Would you say that pasteles en hojas is a healthy dish?

      Hi Asha, it's quite healthy in that it's not fried, and can be low fat depending on which filling you choose. It contains plenty of nutrients.

    Tia Clara would you use potatoes as a substitute for malangas? or another root vegetable?

      Franklin, lo mejor es que congeles los pasteles ya envueltos.

    Well, I’m going to hunt down every supermarket here until I find all the ingredients, because there’s no way I’m going to pass this xmas without eating our beloved Pasteles en hoja.
