Ingredients :

  • Unripe green plantains
  • Frying oil (vegetable oil, coconut oil, or other oil suitable for high-temperature frying)
  • Salt
  • Spices (optional, to add flavor according to your preferences)


Necessary Kitchen Tools:

  • Sharp knife
  • Cutting board
  • Mandoline or vegetable peeler (optional for slicing plantains uniformly)
  • Pan or deep fryer
  • Slotted spoon or spatula for flipping chips during cooking
  • Paper towels (for draining excess oil after cooking)



1. Start peeling the plantains and slicing them into thin rounds using a knife or mandoline. Ensure the slices are uniform for even cooking. You can cut them into desired shapes, such as stars or suns.

2. Heat the oil in a pan or deep fryer over medium to high heat. You can use vegetable oil, coconut oil, or any other high-temperature frying oil.

3. Once the oil is hot, add the plantain slices in a single layer to the pan. Make sure not to overcrowd the pan to allow for even cooking.

4. Fry the plantain slices for a few minutes on each side until they are golden brown and crispy. Use tongs to flip the slices if needed.

5. Once the plantain chips are golden brown, remove them from the oil and place them on paper towels to drain excess oil. Immediately sprinkle them with salt and spices if desired.

6. Allow the plantain chips to cool briefly before enjoying them. They will be crispy and deliciously salty, perfect for snacking anytime during the day.
