From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Very popular tasty side dish for the Pupusas.
Peel and slice the plaintains into 3/4 to 1 inch slices. In a heavy bottomed fry pan, heat enough oil to be a depth of about 1/2 inch, to about 325 degrees. Fry the slices about 2 minutes per side. Remove to paper towel lined pan to drain. In a beautiful bowl combine the sour cream, juice and hot pepper. Set aside. Using a meat pounder or the bottom of a glass measuring cup, flatten each plaintain piece to about 1/4 inch thickness. Reheat the oil in the pan to 325 degrees and cook the pieces until lightly browned, again about 2 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels, cool and sprinkle with sea salt. Serve with the dipping sauce.
