Fry Me Little Plantain

So now that we have finally got George to admit to being a "foodie" and join the occasional food blog train, I figure it's due time to put some more of my cooking experiment photos. Thanks, SlashFood.

Even though I was married to a Puerto Rican beauty, she never made tostones cause they are fried. The first time I had them, it was my first trip to PR and we were visiting her first boyfriend's family (Don't ask).


Here is a bowl of these toasty yummies.

Tostones are plantains that are fried until soft. Then are drained, smashed flat, and fried again til crisp.


This is one up close. Needless to say, it didn't make back to the bowl.

SarahThe Yoruba fry their plantains in a similar manner. At a traditional Nigerian meal, the plantains are ever-so-welcome by me, especially next to the bony catfish, the snails that chew like a portafilter gasket and the twice fried goat.
