Before you fry the plantains

  1. Wash, peel and slice the plantain as shown. Place in a bowl and add a little salt. Toss the plantain to ensure that the salt is evenly distributed.


  2. Pour a generous quantity of vegetable oil into a frying pan and allow to heat. If using a deep fryer, preheat the oil to 170°C.

Frying Directions

  1. When the oil is heated, add a considerable quantity of the plantain slices to the oil, leaving enough room for the slices to fry evenly.


  2. When the underside of the slices starts to turn golden, flip the slices on their other side.
  3. Fry till a desired browning is achieved.
  4. Remove and place in a sieve to drain out the oil.
  5. Fry the next batch of the plantain slices following steps 1 through 4.
