I love Plantains, I can't get tired of a fruit that is edible in every stage of it's life, green, yellow and even black! We used to make these back home in Panama for weekend breakfast, or just a snack to get us going until supper later in the day.
I made mine quite big this time, after all...these particular ones are the offspring of this Giant Mamma Spider..yikes!
Do you guys have any fears or phobias? Some members of my house are not fond of spiders, I don't have a problem with them but I do with roaches (I even hate saying that name)
Spider Eggs Plantain and Cheese Fritters
2-3 Yellow Plantains
Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, White Pepper, Smoked Paprika 1 Tsps each
1/8 Pd Chorizo
1 TBSP Corn Starch
1/8 Pd your favorite Cheese
Panko Bread Crumbs
Oil for frying
Cut each plantain in 3 pieces. Cut ends too.
In a heavy pot full of water place your plantains with skin and cook for about 20 minutes until soft. Remove from fire and drain. Peel the skin of the plantain and mash as if you were making mash potatoes.
Season with spices mentioned above and cornstarch. Add the chorizo
Using an ice cream scoop, scoop parts of the mashed plantains, make a ball (as if you were making meatballs), poke a whole and put a piece of your favorite cheese.
Roll the ball in Panko Crumbs and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes for them to set.
Fry each ball on very hot oil until brown and crispy on the outside, about 2-3 minutes, watch them they turn golden very fast. Serve and enjoy
Prep time: 25 minutes Cook Time 3 minutes Serves 6-8 balls
