So you start with a plantain. This one was picture worthy because it was two grown together. It was, however, not fun to peel.
Then you peel it (easier said than done) and chop it into pieces.
Next you toss the plantain pieces into a pan with hot oil
Next you take them out of the pan, and squish them one by one. I find that a coffee cup works well for this.
Then you fry them again (healthy, huh?)
When you take them out, you can heavily salt them (the popular option) or you can smother them in cinnamon and sugar (my favorite). Very yummy, very cheap, but pretty time consuming.
That same night I also made fried yucca (a future post) and tortillas (way more complicated than you would think). Fun night :)
