Platanos Maduros... Cuban style fried sweet plantains.

The trick is to to let your plantains ripen to a nice black- the darker the more sweet... if not they will be starchy and unsweet like a potato.

Ingredients

How to Make Platanos Maduros

Step-by-Step

  1. Cover pan 1/4 inch with Canola oil and set to medium.
    Slice ripened plantains at an angle, about 1/4 - 1/2 inch each.

    NOTE: You have to let your plantains ripen to a nice black- the darker the more sweet... if not they will be starchy and unsweet like a potato.
  2. Fry plantains until carmalized- turning over once. Set them on a paper towel to absorb the oil.
    Eat as is- no need for sugar they are sweet enough!
