Fried Yellow Plantains wt Breadcrumbs (Panko)

Plantains are sometimes referred to as the pasta and potatoes of the Caribbean. Sold in the fresh produce section of the supermarket, they usually resemble green bananas but ripe plantains may be black in color.Many people confuse plantains with bananas, some of the differences are noted above. Although they look a lot like green bananas and are a close relative, plantains are very different. They are starchy, not sweet, and they are used as a vegetable in many recipes, especially in Latin America and Africa. Plantains are sold in the fresh produce section of the supermarket, they usually resemble green bananas; ripe plantains may be black in color. Plantains are longer than bananas and they have thicker skins. They also have natural brown spots and rough areas. I coated Japanese breadcrumbs (Panko) mixture on the plantains for frying!! The result is awesome crispy and delicious!!









Ingredients:

2 large ripe yellow plantains,peeled and sliced
1/2 cup Panko ( Japanese breadcrumbs)+4 tbsp corn flour
1/2 cup oil for frying
Method:
1:Peeled and sliced ripe yellow plantains ,about 1/2 inch each.(Prefer to use ripe plantains for better taste and easy coating)set aside.
2:Heat skillet with oil at medium heat.Coat sliced plantains with Panko mixture on both side,slowly place coated plantains on the skillet,fry both side until light golden yellow color,then dish out and placed on paper towel to drain the excess oil.Repeat the same process until the plantains finish.
3:Serve warm as side dish or snack.
