Plantain Crisps


Plantain Crisps, savour a delicate sweetness with a crunch in every bite.



Ingredients:

4 green plantain (raw)
600 ml sunflower oil for deep frying
Pinch of crushed chilli flakes
1/4 teaspoon salt


Method:

1.Wash and peel the plantain and slice thinly in rounds using the fine setting on the mandolin.The thinner the slices the crispier they will turn out.
2. Separate the slices and spread them out on a teacloth.
2. Heat the oil in a large deep pan and allow it to heat up.
3. Fry the plantain slices on medium heat until slightly golden brown and crisp.This is very important as frying them on high heat will result in soft chips rather than crispy crisps.
5. Drain on kitchen paper.
6. Sprinkle the crushed chilli flakes and salt .
