Plantains were introduced to the Americas by Spanish explorers and quickly became a staple food in many Caribbean and Latin American countries. Fried plantains are typically made by slicing the plantains into thin pieces, coating them in a batter or flour, and then frying them in hot oil.
There are many different ways to prepare fried plantains, and each country has its own unique recipes. In Jamaica, for example, fried plantains are often served with a spicy sauce or curry. In Cuba, they are often served with a garlic mojo sauce. And in Puerto Rico, they are often served with a dipping sauce made from mayonnaise, ketchup, and garlic.
No matter how they are prepared, fried plantains are a delicious and popular dish that is enjoyed by people all over the world.
