Applying the spice mixture and salt right after frying ensures it adheres well.

Ingredients

2 teaspoons seasoning salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 teaspoon white pepper

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon curry powder

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon cayenne

2 green plantains

Vegetable oil, for frying (about 2 cups/475ml)

Salt

Method

  • In a small bowl, stir together seasoning salt, black pepper, white pepper, cumin, curry powder, paprika and cayenne.
  • Cut off the ends of each plantain. Peel plantains. Cut plantains in half crosswise. Using a mandoline slicer, slice plantains lengthwise into planks 1/8-inch thick.
  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with a wire rack. Fill a large, deep cast iron or stainless steel skillet halfway with oil.
  • Set over medium-high heat until the oil reaches 350°F (175°C). Working in batches and avoiding crowding the pan, add plantain slices and fry, turning occasionally, until golden brown all over, about 4 minutes total.
  • Using a spider strainer or slotted spoon, transfer plantains to wire rack to drain. Immediately season all over with the spice mixture followed by a sprinkling of salt.
  • Repeat with remaining plantain slices.
  • Serve.
