there are ripe (yellow) and green.
the recipe you posted above is better for the ripe ones.
the green ones need a little flavor (salt) to help it along...to make it tostones style is better
cut plantains into slices-not too thin
soak in water and salt mixture...for half an hour to an hour
place in a deep frying pan with about 1-2 inches oil. fry until almost browned
remove from pan, drain, and flatten with a flat edge ..return to fryer until browned
