What are "platanos fritos"?

Is it a Mexican food?


Answer by  alpk11 (173)

Plantanos fritos is a popular food in many latin countries. It is simply fried rice plantains. This yummy desert is a major source of starchy calories. It is important to make sure the plantains are very ripe when cooking up this desert. If the skin is black, then the plantain is ripe enough to cook.

These are actually fried ripe plantains and they are a Caribbean food. They are a major source of starch in the Caribbean diet. When still green they can be fried and used like a potato. When ripe they are sweet and can be fried and used as a dessert.
