Fried Mashed Plantains

1/2 Tbs. Ground Rice
1/2 cup Water
2 lg Plantains; Overripe
1/2 tb All-purpose Flour
Salt and Cayenne Pepper to Taste
1 1/2 tb Onion; Grated
1/2 c Cooking or Palm Oil


In a small bowl soak ground rice in water and let stand for 15 minutes. Mash plantains in a large mixing bowl until smooth and stir in ground rice and flour. Add salt, cayenne pepper, and onions to mixture and thoroughly combine all ingredients. Set aside for 30 to 40-minutes for seasonings to set.


Heat cooking or palm oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Test the hot oil with a toothpick or bread crumb placed in the skillet. When the item quickly sizzles in the oil, the oil is ready for frying. Cook heaping tablespoonfuls full of the plantain mixture, much as you would prepare a pancake. Fry for 3-5 minutes on each side or until golden-brown. Serve warm with vegetable stew or beans.
