**********

When I started collecting the ingredientes to try this recipe it came across to me like something very new...But once we got to the 'banana&strings' part I realized that it was nothing more than a version of the spanish caribbean pasteles recipe; they use grated plantain, wild yam(dasheen), malanga, pumpkin etc...

 Your recipe introduced me to a different flavor in pastelles and I noticed the 'no filling' made it even faster to make. Caribbean kitchen is very much alike from Island to Island; but everyone seems to think that they have some little 'hidden spice' that makes their dish Unique...It might well be so! 

 Thanks for posting the recipe...I'm planning to go shock my Trini friends with this one.

Here are two versions http://www.elboricua.com/pasteles.html  ( PR version)

And here is the Dominican Rep. version
