Did you know that Unripe plantain chips are really easy to make at home? It's so true. For me. I'd say they are even easier to make than most Nigerian snacks. I hadn't made plantain chips in a long time but recently, a former student of mine from a secondary school i once taught Food & Nutrition called me up to ask how its being made. She said she wanted to make some extra cash for herself during this Christmas break. Luckily, i had unripe plantain sitting in the kitchen waiting to be used. Making this tasty snack is as easy as ABC as i'm about show you.
• Grater (you'd need one with a slicer)
• 2 Unripe plantains
• Salt to taste
• Vegetable oil for frying
Step 1: Peel the Unripe plantain with a knife. Using the slicer, slice the unripe plantain into thin circles as shown
Step 2: Place the sliced plantain in a bowl of water mixed with salt and rinse. This is done to remove excess starch. Drain off the excess water from the plantain and pat dry.
Step 3: Place the rinsed plantain in a bowl, add salt to taste, mix and fry in pre-heated vegetable oil till crisp. Remove immediately from the oil and drain on a paper towel as oil has the tendency to make the plantain soft. Serve or store in an airtight container.
