Recipe Notes

*I love doing a blend of brown and white rice as long as the cook time is the same

*just like a banana, the riper the plantain, the sweeter it will be. When the plantain’s skin is dark yellow to brown, the ends are black and it feels soft to the touch is when it is ideal for frying

*coconut has a smoke point of about 350° so be careful not to over heat. You can use a higher heat oil if you'd like, I just prefer the flavor of coconut oil here

*if you have an air fryer that is a much healthier option than pan frying
