Spicy Fried Plantains

4 lg Yellow-ripe plantains; peeled
2 tb Fresh ginger; grated
1 tb Ground cloves
1/2 ts Salt
1/2 ts Ground red pepper
1/4 ts Grated nutmeg
1/4 ts Cinnamon; ground
2 tb Warm water
Vegetable oil for frying


Cut plantains into diagonal slices about 1 /2-inch thick. Stir together ginger, cloves, red pepper, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon in medium bowl. Stir in water to form paste. Add plantain slices; toss to coat. Let stand 30 minutes.

Heat oven to 200 degrees. Pour enough vegetable oil into large skillet to reach 1/2-inch up sides. Heat oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. (An electric skillet should be set at 350 degrees.) Fry plantain slices, in batches, turning once, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Transfer fried plantains with slotted spoon to paper towel-lined baking sheet; keep warm in oven while frying remaining plantains.
