Ingredients

Directions

Place the plantains in a bowl of cold water to soak for 30 to 40 minutes (this will help make them easier to peel).

Combine the salt, garlic, sugar, chile powder, cumin, paprika, thyme, pepper, allspice, cinnamon and clove in a dry pan and toast lightly until aromatic, 1 to 2 minutes. Set aside.

Preheat a large pot of canola oil to 350 degrees F.

Peel the plantains and, using a mandolin, finely slice lengthwise. Working in batches, deep fry the plantain slices in the hot oil until golden and crispy, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain on a paper-towel-lined plate.

Once all of the plantain slices are fried, toss them in the toasted spice mixture and serve.

Cook's Note

While frying, do not overcrowd the pot with too plantain slices or they will not crisp up.
