  • 5 yellow plantains (ripe plantains)
  • Oil for frying
  1. Wash plantains and peel. Cut plantains into desired shapes. My favorite way is to cut them horizontally into half inch thick pieces.

  2. Place oil in a frying pan to 3 inches. Heat up on medium-high to about 325 degrees. Reduce the heat to medium then gently place plantain pieces in the oil one after another. Do not overcrowd the pan (I fried my plantains in 2 batches). Let the plantains cook for about 8 minutes then you flip them to the other side and let them cook for about 2 minutes. They should be nice and golden. Take them out and place on paper towel to absorb excess oil. Repeat process with the rest of the plantains.
