Here are different ways of cutting fried plantain for your kids just to make it interesting for them. It always makes for a change having it in different shapes. Fried plantain is made from ripened yellow plantain deep-fried to perfection (for those that don’t know).
Plantain Cubes – These are made by cutting the plantain lengthwise in half and also cutting the halfs to half again before cutting into cubes.
Plantain Coins – You just cut the plantains as a it is into small circles. Make sure they are not too thin so that it doesn’t soak oil while frying.
Leaf-shaped Plantain – Just as our mums used to slice it, just hold the whole plantain and slice in a slanted way to get the shape. Watch the video for more clarity.
Plantain Fingers – Cut the whole plantain into two wholes, then cut lengthwise into two like the cubes but don’t dice them.
Fried Plantain can be eaten alone as a snack or a finger food for babies. It can also be taken either as a main dish with stew and some protein like chicken, fish or beef, or as a side dish with jollof or white rice and stew. Also it can be had with pap, custard, porridge oats or cornmeal porridge as a filling breakfast for the kids.
