Spicy Plantain Slices

This is a tasty and simple recipe, simply coat slices of a ripe plantain with masala powder, chili powder and salt and fry in olive oil.
I also made some plain ones for Jasmine. I plan to eat this tonight with rice, broccoli, Dal and okra, good veggie meal!
Apparently the plantain is a higher nutritional value than a banana, it is high in fiber, potassium, vitamin C, B6 and has moderate protein typical average size plantain fruit after cooking contains 50 – 80grams of carbohydrate, 2 – 3 grams of protein, 4 - 6 grams of fibre and about 0.01 to 0.3grams of fat.

On the topic of vitamin C: I just came across this study, so for all you men eat your vitamin C rich produce!

Men need plenty of vitamin C to help prevent Gout:

A Recent study done in men has shown that men who consumed 1,500mg of vitamin C per day had a 45 percent less chance of getting gout. Compared to those who consumed 250mg. Great sources include, tangerines, oranges and orange juice, broccoli, tomato juice, and green peppers. Rebecca
