Plantain Chips, Cashews & Dried Cranberries in Coconut, Chilli and Cinnamon
These Plantain Chips, with sweet and chilli flavours, make a great festive food present.
Heat the oil in a deep pan and in the meantime, take the green skin off the plantain and cut the plantain into 1 cm thick circles with a knife of mandolin.
Fry the chips until they are crisp and deepened in colour. You will feel that they are tougher and crisp when you move them with a slotted spoon.
Remove the chips onto a kitchen paper and leave them to cool.
In a non stick pan, toast the cashew nuts until they are lightly golden before adding the cinnamon and the plantain chips. Mix well.
Stir in the chilli flakes, mix again. Then add the agave nectar and the desiccated coconut. Thoroughly mix it all together to make sure the spices and coconut are evenly distributed.
Toss in the dried cranberries and mix again.
Allow the mixture to cool completely before packaging it.
