2 large ripe plantains or bananas, peeled
1 cup self-rising flour
1 small onion, cut into wedges
1/4 teaspoon salt
Oil for deep-fat frying
Place plantains in a food processor; cover and process until smooth. Add the flour, onion, salt and pepper; cover and process until blended (batter will be moist).
In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat 1/4 in. of oil to 375∞. Drop tablespoonfuls of batter, a few at a time, into hot oil. Cook for 1 minute on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
