My Cuñada's Recipe for PATACONES
The author of our Monday post on Ibagué mentioned to me in an e-mail that she had eaten a plethora of plantains. Here is a recipe for one plantain recipe: Patacones. Patacones are popular in most of Colombia and are commonly made in Tolima.
Cut green bananas in pieces about 1 inch in length.
Fry in hot oil -- but remove before they start to brown.
Mash the fried banana.
Place the half cooked mashed banana back in the hot oil and cook until golden and crispy.
Here is a You Tube video of the process.
