To start take the plantains and cut lengthwise down the plantain two or three times down to the flesh
inside and then pull off the skin with your fingers. Then cut the plantains diagonally about ¾ of inch
Next heat up 4 cups of vegetable oil in a large sauce pan on medium high heat, when the oil is hot
enough (test the oil by holding one of the plantains slices in for a second and if it starts to instantly
bubble the oil is ready) and then throw in the plantain slices. Be sure to mix them up and then let them
fry for 4 minutes.
After 4 minutes is up remove them from the oil and smash them with a something solid, we use a
wooden bowl. Your goal is to flatten the plantains. If you can't think of what to use to smash these little
guys just us the bottom of a glass or jar. Once they have all been flattened throw them back in the hot
oil for 7 minutes.
We make a special dipping sauce for our plantains, take and mix together 3 tbsp of ketchup and 3 tbsp
of mayonnaise. Once you are done making the sauce the plantains will should be ready. Take them out
of the oil and drain off the excess. Don't forget to try that dipping sauce!
