Recipe type: Snack; Dessert
Cuisine: Indian
Serves: 3-4
  • 2 Ripe Plantains
  • ¼ cup Cassava flour
  • ⅛ tsp sea salt
  • ⅛ tsp turmeric
  • ½ cup water
  • About ¼ cup coconut oil for shallow frying
  1. Peel the plantains and cut each one into half horizontally. Then cut each half vertically into 2 first and then again cut each of the quarters further so that you get about ½ inch thick slices (you will get 8 pieces from 1 plantain so a total of 16 slices - watch my video to see how I do it!)
  2. In a large mixing bowl add the cassava flour, salt and the turmeric and then add half the water first and stir using a fork to mix and make sure there are no lumps. Then add the rest of the water till you have a slurry. This will thicken slightly upon standing so don't worry if it looks too thin.
  3. Heat a frying pan and add about 2 tbsp of the coconut oil. When hot, slowly dip each plantain slice into the batter and place carefully onto the pan. Don't overcrowd the pan as then you will have trouble flipping the slices. Cook for about 2 mins on medium heat and then flip and cook for another 2 mins until crispy and golden brown. Transfer to a plate. Finish frying all the slices this way. Serve warm!
