- 2 ripe plantains
- 6 cups vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- Peel the plantains and slice them diagonally into 1/2-inch slices.
- Heat the oil in a large pot until very hot (about 375ºF). Fry the plantains in 2 batches until brown and crisp, for about 3 to 4 minutes. Drain them on paper towels.
- In a small bowl combine the sugar with the cinnamon, and blend thoroughly. Roll the fried plantain slices in the mixture and serve immediately with ice cream.
