Puerto Rican Tostones (Fried Plantains)
5 tablespoons oil for frying
1 plantains, peeled and broken into chunks
3 cups cold water
salt to taste
Heat the oil in a large skillet. Place the plantains in the oil and fry on both sides; approximately 3 1/2 minutes per side. Remove the plantains from the pan and flatten the plantains by placing a plate over the fried plantains and pressing down. Dip the plantains in water, then return them to the hot oil and fry 1 minute on each side. Salt to taste and serve immediately.
***The riper the plantain the quicker it will cook, so a yellow or brown speckled one will cook a lot faster than a green one. Also the riper the plantain the sweeter it will be.
