Corn Oil (as needed)
over medium heat in two separate skillets.
While the oil is heating up, peel the plantains. Cut the
into about 1-inch circles. Cut the
in thinner diagonal slices.
Fry green plantain for about 1 minute on each side and set aside. At the same time, fry yellow plantain until each side is nice and golden. Set aside until serving.
Take the green plantain circles and flatten them. You can smash them with the bottom of a plate, pan, or cup. Put the flattened plantains back in the oil and fry for another 2-3 minutes until nice and crunchy. Remove the plantains and drain them on paper towels.
In a small bowl, mix
Corn Oil (1/4 cup)
Fresh Cilantro (1/2 tsp)
Garlic (1/4 tsp)
