How to Make Kelyache Kaap (Golden Plantains)

  • Cut each plantain in half, then make a lengthwise cut along one side just through the skin.
  • Peel off the skin.
  • Cut the plantain lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices.
  • In a cast-iron or non-stick skillet, heat the oil.
  • Meanwhile, toss the plantain slices with the turmeric and chilli powders and salt.
  • Place the rava in a plate and dredge each plantain slice in the rava, making sure both sides are well-coated.
