Fried plantains have so many variations. You have banana-que's (imagine barbeque-like bananas), banana fritters, fried bare plantains, fried sweetened plantains, fried plantain a la-modes, my favorite spring rolled bananas, banana chips, ...and I'm sure there are others more.
For this post, I'll share with you a simple (yet very tasteful) fried plantains recipe. It's a crispy, sweet treat for kids and adults alike. It's very quick and easy to do, too.
- Plantains (saging na saba), cut length-wise thinly
- Brown sugar
- Cooking oil
- Heat cooking oil in the pan.
- Put the stove in medium to heat heat.
- When the oil is ready, fry sweetened plantains.
- When the sugar caramelizes, turn the plantains. You want the cooked side to be a little burnt.
- When both sides are cooked, put aside to drain.
- Let the oil drip in a strainer.
- Serve when the fried plantains cool off.
As to the exact measurement of sugar for this recipe, feel free to guess-timate. You can gauge it from the amount I put in my plantains in the above photo.
Remember me when you cook!
