I love cooking with Green plantains.. They are a great starch substitute for regular potatoes and exotic to serve at a fancy dinner party. Normally I make a Green plantains “sabji” (stir fried and seasoned) but today I wanted to make something different. Aloo (Potato) Tikki (cakes) are a very common snack in India so I derived my inspiration from that and made “tikkis” out of the plantains. They turned out to be delicious.. I served them with some leftover mango pineapple salsa and fresh guacamole.
I felt that I was transported to some exotic island… the flavors were light and so refreshing..Perfect for Spring and Summer dinners! Hope you enjoy!
Green plantains Prep:
Cut the green plantains with skin on into 2-3″ chunks. Peel the skins off using a knife.
