– 2 plantain, (green, unripe) – 1 large red onion, [7.08 gr] – 1 egg, (medium) – 1 teaspoon salt – 2 tablespoons chopped chives – 2 cup oil, for frying



Grate plantains and onions with the coarse side of the grater.


Combine the grated plantain and onion. Mix in egg, salt, and chives.


Heat the oil over medium-high heat 350 °F [177 °C]. Scoop two tablespoons of the plantain mixture into the oil, fry 3 or 4 at a time so the oil doesn't get too cool. Once golden brown on one side, flip and fry until golden brown all over.
