Fried Green Plantains
- some vegetable oil
- 4 green plantain
- some salt
- 1 deep fry pan
In a deep fry pan, heat about 1 inch of vegetable oil on medium-high heat until it's hot. (To test oil temp, dip the handle of a wooden spoon into the oil. When the oil bubbles around the stick, it's ready for frying.)
In batches, fry green plantain pieces about 2 to 3 minutes on both sides, until lightly golden. Remove plantains from pan and drain on a plate covered with 2 or 3 paper towels.
While still warm, use the bottom of a glass to flatten the fried plantain pieces until they are about 1/4-inch thick.
Heat oil again and return flattened plantain rounds into the oil. Fry until both sides are golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Drain on a paper towel- lined plate.
Season with salt to taste and serve with refried beans, cashew cream, or chilero hot sauce for dipping.
