Don’t forget to “Like” the video, it will make me so happy .
My cookbook:

In this video, I’m going to show you how I fry my plantains, super simple but full of flavor.
• 4 banana plantain, peeled and cut
• 1 onion, sliced
• 1 teaspoon of chili powder
• 1 teaspoon of salt
• ½ cup of water
• Red palm oil or any vegetable oil
Step 1: Heat the oil in your skillet and fry the plantains until they are golden brown. Remove them from the oil and set aside.
Step 2: Reduce the oil from the skillet and leave about a table spoon.
Then add the onions, ground chili pepper and salt. Stir fry for few minutes. Return the fried plantains in the pot add the half cup of water, cover and simmer at a low heat for a few minutes.
When it ready serve it as a side dish or alone.

  1. I love how you finish them with the red onions, seasonings, never seeing anything like that and looks so finished, I have to tried it, thank you, very good presentation..

  2. If you ever update this recipe, you should have a section on how to select plantains…for Westerners. I'm from a plantain culture but moved to the West…so I had to reeducate myself. Most Westerners find it totally confusing.

  3. oh thank you thank you thank you. i now have a way to cook plaintains that i just may really love. I love purple onions and often even eat them raw as a snack and i love plantains but mine never come out tasting good so i always get someone to make them for me. now i don't have to worry when i have a craving. two of my favorite things together. thanks for another keeper, i'm liking and making this a favorite.

  4. Thank you for reminding me that I love these. I just showed the clip to my spouse, who is French & very non-adventurous with food, but he is a good shopper at our greenmarket and he agrees to get us some plantains — they are often thrown out and gleaning is legal in this country (I get a lot of free stuff that way). Your use of red/purple onions here is a really good idea — milder, sweeter, more subtle. Keep up the good work, & I am about to check out your meat samosa clip.
