  PLATANOS MADUROS
by REYNALDOPICHARDO
 
 

The Platanos, green bananas, are the dominican staple in all tipical dishes, something of a cult following! LOL
If you can make it with Platanos, bets are it was done a long time ago here, even Plantain juice!!!, and it's very tasty, since it's a fibre rich item, you can bet it's a well recommended diet piece!
No wonder Dominicans are Nicknamed Platanos in some Latin-American countries, and nothing will make me stop eating a tasty crunchy dish of tostones!!!!!!!!LOL
The ones in the left are MADUROS-Yellow bananas
