Chatinos or fried green plantains


Servings: 
1
Ingredients: 

one green plantain

Cooking instructions: 

Peel and slice the plantains into 3 cm. thick pieces. Toss into the frying pan with cold oil and cook until slightly golden. Let cool.

Crush wrapped in the skin of the plantain or in a thick paper.

At the time of serving, fry again in hot oil.

Sprinkle with salt before serving.

Notes: 
Some people prefer to soak the chatinos in salty water before frying them for the second time rather than adding salt after they are already done. Both choices are possible.
