Ingredients

4 to 6 yellow (unripe) plantains

2 tablespoons kosher salt 

1 tablespoon garlic powder 

1 tablespoon sugar 

1/2 teaspoon chipotle chile powder 

1/2 teaspoon cumin 

1/2 teaspoon paprika 

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves 

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 

Pinch ground allspice 

Pinch ground cinnamon 

Pinch ground clove 

Canola oil, for deep frying 

Directions

  1. Place the plantains in a bowl of cold water to soak for 30 to 40 minutes (this will help make them easier to peel).
  2. 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.
  3. Preheat a large pot of canola oil to 350 degrees F.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
