Venezuelan Plantain Balls

00:50:00

Sweet, savoury, gluten free and delicious! These balls are a great alternative to potato croquettes and a great way of using left-overs. Plus they only use 1 ingredient, plantain. In this recipe I didn’t put any ingredient quantity because you can filled them with anything you want.
