We love plantain chips in my home and making this was a hit. I wonder how I was even able to take photographs because we kept picking on it. With each batch I fried, we picked at it until it was finished.
I have an unripe version of this chips here and this is just an update on using the ripe ones.
To make these, make sure the plantains you use are not too soft and not unripe either. Medium ripe plantains would do for this recipe. They should be yellow, but not soft to the touch. Make sure to fry them with a close eye on them as they can easily burn
here is a recipe for you here
- 3 medium ripe plantain
- oil for frying
- Using a knife, peel the skin of the plantain and using a vegetable slicer or potato peeler, slice the plantain into any shape you prefer.
- Heat the oil to 350degrees and fry the plantain until browned and crispy
- Drain on a paper towel and serve
