These Fried Plantain Chips are crispy, gluten free, vegan and ready in less than 30 minutes. They are great as a side dish, snack, appetizer or meal starter.
Peel the green plantain using the same techniques I showed on my Sweet Fried Plantain recipe
Slice the plantain in slices of 0.5cm thick
In a pan add the 2 cups of vegetable oil and warm up at a medium temperature
Add the plantain slices and cook for 2 to 3 minutes so they soften. Place the slices on a kitchen paper to absorb excess oil
On a chopping board or work service sprinkle salt and garlic powder. Using an object with flat bottom squash each slice gently but firm. You want the borders of the slices to "open" or "spread" as this is what's going to give the crispness. See video recipe. Repeat the process for all slices
Once all slices are squashed, fry them again until they are crispy, approx 6 to 7 minutes depending on how hot your oil is. Remove from the oil and place on kitchen paper to absorb excess oil.
Sprinkle salt over the fried chips and serve!
