Puerto Rican Tostones (Fried Plantains)

Puerto Rican Tostones (Fried Plantains)

5 tablespoons oil for frying
1 firm green plantains, peeled and broken into chunks (or cut diagonally)
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.

LatinaCook comment: If you fry them until they look brownish, you've overdone it. Go for the crispy golden look.
