  • plantains you cannot do it on
  • vegetable oil at least 400ml
  • salt to taste


  • Peel the plantain.
  • You can cut it round or long like me. It's important that it's reaaally think to make it nicer (about 1mm thick) so I recommend that you use a mandolin to have it nice and even.
  • Heat the oil to medium heat. If you're making them long make sure you're using a pan where they fit.
  • Fry the plantains in small batches so they don't stick to each other nor decrease the temperature of the oil.
  • Take them out and put onto a bowl with kitchen paper to absorb the excess fat.
  • Add salt and serve ?
