Ingredients

  • 2 Green Plantains
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 C oil for frying

Instructions

  1. Peel the plantains and cut each into 1 to 1½-inch sections.

  2. Heat oil. Put the plantains into hot frying oil and cook until golden brown.Remove them with a slotted spoon and place onto a cooling rack.

  3. Flatten each fried portion with the base of a glass or by placing the plantain in between two wooden boards. The idea is to flatten each round to obtain ¼-inch thick flat pancake.

  4. Deep fry the plantain flat coins, in small batches, until golden and crisp.
