Servings Vary; 1 plantain makes 6-8 cups

Ingredients
  • 1 large green plantain, cut into 2 inch pieces
  • Canola oil
  • Salt
  • Rivera's tostonera or 2 mini muffin pans (not silicone)
  • Paper towels
Directions
  • Fill large bowl with warm salted water to cover the plantains. Peel green plantain and cut into 2 inch pieces. Put the cut plantains into the water and soak.

  • Heat oil to 375 degrees F.

  • Remove plantains from water, shake off excess water and fry the plantain pieces for 5 to 6 minutes. Remove the plantains and let cool for a couple of minutes.

  • Using the Rivera Tostonera designed to make cups put fried plantains lengthwise into mold. If you don't have a Tostonera maker take 2 mini muffin pans and put fried plantains in the mold of 1 pan lengthwise and with the other muffin pan press down firmly to form a cup.

  • Carefully remove the cup and re-fry the plantain cup in the hot oil until golden brown.

  • Remove the cups and drain on paper towels and sprinkle with salt.

  • Serve warm.
