Sweet Plantain Fritters

"This vegan, paleo friendly recipe is a simple, quick and an absolutely delicious crunchy treat. I grew up in India with my Mum cooking ripe plantain this way especially when we wanted something sweet. It hits the right spot and is very satiating indeed. Do try it and tell me if you agree"
