  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pimentón de la Vera (smoked Spanish paprika)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 3 firm, green plantains, peeled

How to make this recipe

  1. In a small bowl, mix the sugar with the curry powder, smoked paprika, salt and cayenne pepper.

  2. In a large, deep saucepan, heat 2 inches of vegetable oil to 350°. Slice the plantains 1/16 inch thick. Working in batches, fry the plantains, stirring occasionally, until golden and crisp, about 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the chips to paper towels to drain. Immediately sprinkle generously with the spice mix, toss to coat and serve.
