Directions HIDE IMAGES
STEP 1
Peel the Plantain (1).
STEP 2
Slice the plantain in slices of 0.5 centimeters thick.
STEP 3
In a pan add the Vegetable Oil (2 cup) and warm up at a medium temperature
STEP 4
Add the plantain slices and cook for 2 to 3 minutes so they soften. Place the slices on a kitchen paper to absorb excess oil
STEP 5
On a chopping board or work service, sprinkle Salt (1 pinch) and Garlic Powder (1 pinch). Using an object with flat bottom, squash each slice gently but firm. You want the borders of the slices to "open" or "spread" as this is what's going to give the crispness. Repeat the process for all slices
STEP 6
Once all slices are squashed, fry them again until they are crispy, abour 6 to 7 minutes depending on how hot your oil is. Remove from the oil and place on kitchen paper to absorb excess oil.
STEP 7
Sprinkle salt over the fried chips. Serve and enjoy!
