Traditional Tostones (Tostones Tradicionales)

Servings 6

2 cups corn oil
3 green plantains, peeled and cut in 1-inch diagonal slices  

1 In a deep heavy skillet, heat the oil until it is very hot but not smoking. Drop in the
plantain slices and brown on all sides. Remove with a slotted spoon, but maintain the oil
temperature. Using a tostonera or two pieces of waxed paper, flatten the plantain
slices to 1/4 inch thick. Refry until golden brown on both sides. Remove and drain on
paper towels.
2 NOTE: For a more sophisticated dish, arrange the tostones on a platter and top each
with 1 teaspoon of sour cream and 1/2 teaspoon black or red caviar. Delicious!
