Sounds like a tasty lil' treat -- But more like a dip than a full meal! --
*Mofongo* 3 Plantains -- very green 1/2 Pound Pork rinds -- ground * 3 Cloves of garlic 1 Tablespoon Olive oil Veg. oil for frying
* note: packaged pork rinds can be used.
Peel the plantains and cut into 1-inch diagonal pieces. Place them in 4 cups of water with 1 tsp. of salt and let stand for 15 minutes. Drain well.
Heat oil in a pan to 350~ and fry the plantains for about 15 minutes. Do not over-cook. Remove the plantains from the pan and place on paper towels to drain.
Place the garlic in a food processor and mince well. Remove garlic from the processor and mix with the olive oil well.
If you have a large, wooden mortar and pestle; place 3 or 4 pieces of plantain in it and an equal amount of pork rind. Mix well. Add a little bit of the garlic oil and mix well. (If you don't have a mortar; improvise) Take 3 Tablespoons of the mixture and with your hands form a ball with it. Repeat until you have used up all of the ingredients. Serve hot!
The flow itself is un~inhibited -- brazen/bold -- and devil~may~care niceness! -- *smiles*
