Aranitas (Shredded Green Plantain Patties)
Another quick and fun way of preparing green plantains, aranitas (little spiders) come out really crunchy and look so pretty on the plate. Remember to season them as soon as they come out of the oil. Traditionally served with mayo-ketchup (1:1 ratio blend of mayonnaise and ketchup with fresh pressed garlic or garlic powder to taste).
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
