Fried Green Plantains (Tostones) This is a very popular Cuban side dish, and always served with most Cuban main dishes.

Using a knife, cut the plantains into 1 inch thick chunks. In a frying pan or deep fryer, pour 2 to 3 inches of the oil and heat the oil over medium-high heat. Fry the plantain chunks for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until they are golden brown. Remove them and placing them in a bowl with a paper towel to soak the oil. Wait a few minutes until the plantain chunks cool down. Using a paper towel, wrap the chunks and smash them flat.
