Puerto Rican Tostones (Fried Plantains)

Tostones are a very famous Latin American and Carribean side dish, It made from raw Plantains which others knowns as raw bananas. tostones are the word derived from the Spanish word that means "to toast:. The term is also used for 50 cent coin in "Honduras". The origin of the dish is quite mystifying as some belief it a dish from Latin American where some take it as a Caribbean dish. Whatever the origins its a double-fried plantain that goes perfectly for any side or snack.

Unlike the yellow ripe bananas that are eaten raw, plantains are made for cooking and can be steamed, boiled, grilled, fried or baked. When green plantains are twice-fried, they are called Tostones, when the sweet plantains are fried only once they are called Maduros. We will share that recipe shortly.

Cooked plantains are nutritionally very similar to a potato, calorie-wise, but contain more of some vitamins and minerals. They are a rich source of fiber, vitamins A, C and B-6, and the minerals magnesium and potassium.

To peel off the skin, first cut the plantains in 1 inches circle and then take out the skin.




Ingredients : 

2 raw Plantains
1/4 cup oil
Sea salt to taste

Chipotle sauce for dipping

Method:

Cut the plantains in 1-inch thickness, take out the skin.







Heat the oil in a deep frying pan.

When the oil is hot, add few plantains and fry till golden brown. Take out on a paper towel.

Finish with all plantains.


Take a wooden spoon, from the back of the spoon, take out plantain and press it and make it flatten.

Fry all the flattened plantains, till its golden.

Take it out and sprinkle with sea salt and enjoy with chipotle sauce.

Mix mayo and chipotle and make a sauce, or with any favorite sauce of yours.
