Tips for making Fried Plantain
1. Use a ripe but firm plantain. Do not use over-ripe plantains.
2. Be sure to use plantain not banana. Plantain looks so much like banana but it is bigger. Plantains are not sweet like bananas.
3. Make sure the oil is hot enough before putting the slices of plantain.

  1. @simisolameda Thank you so much for the compliments. You can be whatever you want to be dear. You just have to believe in yourself and learn everything necessary to become who/what you want to be. With the internet, you can get a lot of information on any subject online. Most of them are free. Goodluck 🙂

  2. what type of onion did you use? and didnt the oil pop from the water on the plantain? sorry im a beginner but ur vids r so helpful

  3. I use white onions because it is more common where I live. But the type of onions does not matter at all, red, white, all are the same. The oil will sizzle a bit from the water on the plantain and that’s normal. The water helps the salt to evenly distribute on the plantains so it is necessary. No worries, feel free to ask me any question about my recipes. 🙂

  4. I have been looking for a recipe like my mom use to make and this is it. Thank you for sharing

  5. Well done! :)) The most important thing is that you enjoyed it. But doesn’t it taste like roasted plantain? Roasted plantain is another nigerian recipe (I actually have a video for that) so it may be difficult to differenciate between the two if they are both roasted, if you know what I mean.

    I also prepare my plantain with the same method. The oven baked taste great and there is no sacrifice in taste. Although when DH prepares plantain he fries them. Both methods taste great!

  7. That’s good to know, thanks! Yea, maybe it’s the oil and the slicing :))) Well done! I will try it 🙂

  8. I use sunflower oil. Any other odourless and tasteless vegetable oil works well for Nigerian meals. Like I said in the video, that’s a chunk of onion not butter.
