No No No. Forget it. Drop it. Let it go. Don’t even go there!
To the point of no return, that’s where. A place so many snack-lovers eventually reach after years of trial and error, decades of frustration. ‘Hand-Cooked Plantain Dressed in Chilli World‘ is the awesome place we’re talking about. The Land of Sweet and Savoury. Once you’ve ‘been there’, we can guarantee you’ll never go back to other snacks. So perhaps it’s time to start getting your gear together and saying your goodbyes to them?
If you’re a dedicated crisp aficionado who has given up work, studying, socialising, watching TV, etc., to devote your entire time to searching for the Holy Grail of Crisps, the ultimate crunchy snack with a unique balance of flavours, congratulations: you’ve finally found it.
“Don’t be silly, it’s only a bit of chilli!” did we hear you say? Have you any idea how much research, time and effort has gone into creating Hand-Cooked Plantain Dressed in Chilli Crisps by the CHIKA’S team, to give crisp-lovers the world-over the crisp they’ve always wanted but never quite found (until now)?
Like chickpeas, sensationally starchy plantains (large bananas without the sweetness, folks) are a West African culinary staple. They go down well in the Americas and the Caribbean, too. And they’re ideal for making insanely crunchy crisps with – crisps that are BIG on flavour; scrumptious crisps with a mix of sweet and savoury; crisps that are lower in fat and salt than potato crisps (and tastier, too!).
Once the very best, perfectly ripe plantain fruits are picked from the trees, in the best West African tradition we slice and shallow-fry them lovingly and patiently until a deep golden colour, before seasoning them with chilli so that snack-lovers everywhere can get a kick out of them and enjoy the sweet and spicy flavours that blend together perfectly.
