Green Plantain Chips

Green Plantain chips:

Green plantains are pretty much available year-round in Massachusetts and it's very cheap too. Most of the time I buy them 3 for 99¢ which is darn cheap. I love to make chips and my family loves to eat them. It's very easy to make and it uses just a few ingredients. Next time when you go to the supermarket, don't forget to buy some and make some chips at home. I bet you & your family will love them.

The green ones yield more crunchy chips because they crisp-up better while the ripe plantain yields sweeter tasting chips, they may not be as crisp as their green counterpart. I'm using a slightly ripened one but you may use a fully raw one.


  1. Green plantain
  2. Paprika
  3. Garlic powder
  4. Salt
  5. Ground black pepper
  6. Oil to fry


  • Cut both ends & discard. Make a slit lengthwise, and peel the skin off.
  • Cut it into halves and soak it in water for 10 minutes.

  • Take it out of the water & pat it dry and slice them into thin round pieces.
  • In a deep cast iron pan add enough oil for deep frying the plantain over medium heat.
  • Add a piece and check if the oil is ready to use.
  • Add pieces one at a time otherwise they’ll stick together.
  • Move them around and fry till they change their color slightly.
  • Sprinkle some salt and paprika. You may also sprinkle some garlic powder and ground black pepper if you want.
