Plantain Vermicelli Cutlets

Plantain-Vermicelli Cutlets

Ghee roasted plantain, vermicelli, coconut, egg and cashew nuts, combined together to make this incredibly delicious cutlets…

I’ve posted many recipes using plantain as I’m a die hard fan of plantain. So glad that plantains are always available at the Canadian grocery store that I shop every week. I try to make something different out of plantains each time, though my most favorite still is ghee roasted plantains.

This time, I combined vermicelli, ghee roasted plantains, roasted coconut, egg and cashew nuts together and made into cutlets. Tasted delish!
