🍽 Serves ⏲ Total Time
4 6 minutes

🧂 Ingredients

  • 🛢 some vegetable oil
  • 🍌 4 green plantain
  • 🧂 some salt

🍳 Cookware

  • 1 deep fry pan

📝 Instructions

Step 1

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.)

Step 2

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.

Step 3

While still warm, use the bottom of a glass to flatten the fried plantain pieces until they are about 1/4-inch thick.

Step 4

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.

Step 5

Season with salt to taste and serve with refried beans, cashew cream, or chilero hot sauce for dipping.
