    Iwould recommend fried plantains to anyone who has not tried them before. I use them as an accompaniement to currys or if I've bought a lot will eat them just as a snack. I tend to do mine slightly different. I fry in a mix of half vegetable oil and half ghee. When finished I salt and then squeeze over fresh lemon or lime juice.  -  19 Aug 2012
