PREPARATION TIME : 5 MINS
COOKING TIME : 25-30 MINS
2 raw plantains (green colour)
Red chili powder as required
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying
To peel plantain, cut off the ends. Then using a peeler, slice the peel lengthwise from top to bottom, just enough to cut through the peel.Then use a slicer to slice the plantain.
Heat oil in a kadai,slice the plantain directly into the oil in low flame .Be careful when doing this,else you can slice them in a plate then drop them into the oil one by one.Deep fry them on both sides until the oil stops the oozing sound.
Remove them to a kitchen paper to absorb the excess oil.
Add salt,red chilli powder and toss them well.
