I haven't met a fried food I didn't like. Isn't there something about fried foods, be they fritters, chips or fries, that sets off the nonstop munching. Of course, they are bad for you but if you eat only a few occasionally then its okay - I convince myself by saying that and now please don't disagree with me after you have tasted these plantain chips. Crispy and tangy and spicy all in one bite....
I used green plantains, peeled and sliced thin. I fried the chips in batches in a deep wok and sprinkled the chips with a mixture of salt and chilli powder. I used *amchur (dried mango powder) for tanginess.
To fry plantain chips you will need - 2 green plantains, peeled and sliced thinly. Heat olive oil in a wok or deep pan. When the oil is hot, add the sliced green plantains in batches and fry to a golden crispy brown. Drain well on paper towels and sprinkle with the spice mixture. Serve warm.
*Amchur is available in Indian grocery stores.
