Plantain chips have a crunchy texture and a sweet flavor that makes them irresistible. They are a great way to satisfy a craving for something sweet without overindulging. Plantain chips can be eaten as a snack or served as a side dish to any meal.
Plantain chips are super easy to make and require minimal ingredients. All you need is a few ripe plantains, some oil, and some salt. The plantains are sliced into thin strips and then fried in hot oil until they are golden brown and crispy. Once they are cooked, the chips are sprinkled with salt to give them an extra flavor boost.
- 4 ripe plantains
- ¼ cup of olive oil (or oil of your choice)
- Sea salt, to taste
The first step is to prepare the plantains. Start by peeling the plantains and then slicing them into thin strips. Make sure the strips are all the same thickness in order to ensure even cooking.
Once the plantains are sliced, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the plantain strips to the skillet and fry them for 3-4 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy. Be sure to stir the plantain chips frequently to prevent them from sticking together or burning.
When the plantain chips are finished cooking, remove them from the skillet and place them on a plate lined with paper towels. This will help absorb any excess oil. Sprinkle the chips with sea salt, to taste.
Your plantain chips are now ready to be served. Enjoy them as a snack or serve them as a side dish with your favorite meal. They are sure to be a hit with your family and friends. Enjoy!
