Deciding what to call a dish can be more difficult than creating it in the first place. I had no idea what to call these things. The best I could do was to come up with some cornball name. Yeah, maybe that’s what they are – Corn Balls. After all, they are made with cornbread batter. I considered Battered Plantains but that sounded abusive. I may not know what to call them but I do know how they happened.
These plantains were yellow when I bought them, but after a few days on the counter they turned almost completely black.
I peeled the plantains and cut them into chunks then I sprinkled red Kashmiri chili powder and drizzled lime juice over them.
I dipped the chunks in cornbread batter and cooked them in an aebelskiver pan with a few drops of coconut oil.
These were good as they were out of the pan, or with maple syrup, or with a squeeze of lime.
