With the success of the french fries I decided to try the same technique with plantains. And to my surprise it came out perfectly, just like what you would buy from the supermarket. To me, this was a plus because this meant that I didn’t need to buy plantain chips whenever I felt for some. Which could be like all the time lol!
The Perfect Plantain Chips
From the looks of it, this is another recipe that will be in heavy rotation at home because it’s easy , straight forward and healthy. Why do I say healthy? For one, these plantain chips don’t have all those long, funny sounding names or colourings you see in snacks these days: it’s just plain simple homemade plantain chips with a little salt. Of course you could add other seasonings to your liking. I think next time I would add some chadon beni and garlic to mine. 🙂
One thing I would note though, is that you make sure the plantain chips are dry and not sticking to each other before adding them to the pot, because that is how they would fry. And you would have a lot of plantain chips clumping together. So I hope you enjoy this one. I certainly did and so did my family because it was finished in no time! Really! in no time….Here’s Plantain Chips.
Plantain Chips Recipe
1 hand green plantain
oil for frying
salt to taste
Note: As a variation I’m thinking of adding the salt when I’m refrigerating the plantains so that the salt would soak into the plantain chips. Then there wouldn’t be a need to add salt at the end…Just a thought!
