Lent Food: Plataninas

Rudy Giron: AntiguaDailyPhoto.com &emdash;

Basically, plataninas are green platano/plantains chips. Plantains are like bananas, but much bigger and with a unique flavor. Guatemalans eat platanos in many forms, such as plataninas, rellenitos (deep-fried stuffed platains balls), fritos (fried), atol de platano, chairbroiled and baked; just to name a few.

For this entire series, I decided to go as early as possible to catch many of the food vendors in the process of preparing the food or getting ready for a full day.

    I just love those plataninas….but the rellenitos are my all time favourite! Every time I come to Guate, the family make them for me with lashings of cream and sugar on top!
