3 Green Plantains

 

2 cup Corn or Vegetable Oil

 

1 cup Water

 

1 tbsp. Salt (optional)

1 Tostonera (Plantain Press)

2. Place oil in a deep frying pan on medium heat. In a small bowl, add other ingredients

    and set aside.

 

3. Place cut plantains in hot oil. Cook plantains for 5 to 7 minutes on each side until

    golden brown. Then, remove plantains and lower heat.

 

4. Use quickly a wooden plantain press (Tostonera) or 2 plantain's skins to flatten each

    slice to a thickness of about 1/3-inch.

 

5. Soak flattened plantains in water mixture flavored with 2 tbsp. of sour orange juice or

    vinegar and place in oil on medium heat.

 

6. Turn plantains on each side until crispy and golden.

    with pikliz.

u If you don't have a plantain press, you can use a cutting board or clean hard surface and the back of a strong spatula.
