Reviews for Plantain Fritters
"BEING THAT I'M PUERTO RICAN, I LOVE EATING FRIED PLANTANOS (PLANTAINS.) I THOUGHT THIS WOULD BE INTERESTING TO TRY AND IT WAS. BUT NEXT TIME I WILL ADD 3-4 RIPE PLANTAINS TO THE RECIPE BECAUSE I LOVE THAT FLAVOR AND IT JUST WASN'T ENOUGH FOR ME. I ONLY USED A SMALL PEICE OF AN ONION BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT IT TO OVER POWER AND I WAS PERFECT, IT ADDED A NICE TASTE. SPRINKLED WITH A LITTLE SALT, COMPLIMENTS THE SLIGHTLY SWEET INSIDE. MY KIDS ENJOYED IT TOO!"
