HOW TO PREPARE PLANTAIN CHIPS


Lovers of plantain chips, do like this πŸ™‹πŸ˜ and if you've never tasted plantain chips before, we will initiate you into our plantain chips eating world today πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.
For those not new to anything plantain chips, plantain chips is a Nigerian snack made with plantains (ripe or unripe). The unripe one is bright yellow in colour while the ripe one is deep yellow in colour (See photo). Please note that the plantain used in making the ripe one should be the one that is just beginning to ripe and still hard. So let's get down to the preparation.
INGREDIENTS
Plantains (ripe or unripe)
Vegetable oil
Salt to taste
Vegetable slicer (optional)
Non-stick pan
Note: You are going to deep fry the plantain, so make sure you
PREPARATION
Wash and peel the plantain.
If you have a vegetable slicer, use it to slice the plantains. If you don't have, use your knife to thinly slice the plantains. Make sure you have a bowl of water close to you, so that as you slice the plantains you put them in the water; it will help the plantains not to change colour.
When done, transfer to a sieve. Add salt and stir.
Set the Non-stick pan on fire, add the vegetable oil and heat up till hot.
Gently put the plantain slices in the oil. Don't place one on top of another and make sure they are not stuck together. Stir the plantains. When it's bright yellow (for unripe plantain) or deep yellow (for ripe plantain), transfer from the oil to a sieve. Allow to cool down.
When they are cool, store in air tight containers and eat them whenever you want.
Happy snacking πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‹πŸ˜
