  • Sieve
  • Paper towels to drain oil
  • Vegetable slicer (optional)


  • Ripe/unripe plantain
  • Vegetable oil
  • Salt
  • Water


  • Wash plantain
  • Peel the plantain and put inside a bowl
  • Using a vegetable slicer, thinly slice the plantains into a bowl of water. The water helps the plantain to maintain its colour. You can equally use a knife to slice the plantains.
  • After slicing, add salt and stir gently
  • Transfer the plantain into a sieve to drain the water.
  • Put a saucepan on fire and pour into it vegetable oil
  • Heat until hot.
  • Put the slices of plantain into the oil in batches. Avoid putting plenty of the slices in the oil to prevent them from getting stuck together.
  • Using a wooding spatula, stir the plantains till they are golden and crunchy.
  • Transfer the fried slices into a sieve lined with paper towels to drain oil
  • Package in an air-tight container when they have cooled down completely.
  • Your crunchy plantain chips are ready. Enjoy your snack with coca cola or nothing.
