Preparation for Accra Style Tostones

  1. Cut the peeled fresh plantains into 3/4 inch by width sections
  2. In a deep pot, pour enough vegetable oil that will cover the plantain completely when fried
  3. Allow the oil to heat up and slowly drop half of the plantain sections so the oil isn't too crowded
  4. Allow the plantains to fry for about 4-5 minutes or until they turn slightly yellow and crisp
  5. Take them out of the oil and smash lightly with a tolling pin or mug
  6. Re-Fry the smashed plantains for another 3 minutes until they are golden brown, get out of the oil and strain in some paper towels to remove excess oil
  7. Voilá you're ready to pair the Tostones with your Spicy Guac! ENJOY
