TIP

- If you are frying with little oil, the best type of frying pan or pot to use is non-stick frying pan/pot so as not to stick and to make it easy to fry

 

 

- During frying, if the plantain is turning brown so fast reduce the heat to low or take it off the heat for some seconds 

- You can deep fry whole plantain between 12-15 minutes in 350 degree oil

- Ripe Plantain: If you have an unripe plantain; wrap it in a kitchen towel and tie in a nylon (grocery bag), this process will make it ripe faster than placing on the kitchen counter (make sure to check 1-2 days after)
