  • 2 eggs
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp paprika powder

3. Take 3 deep plates. Put the flour in the first,  the beaten eggs in the second and the breadcrumbs in the third. Shape the plantain-meat mixture into balls or oblong croquettes.

4. Coat each ball first with the flour, then with the egg and finally with the breadcrumbs.

4. Heat a deep fryer with oil to 170°C and fry a few croquettes in it for 3 minutes. Drain on kitchen paper and serve!

5. If you wish, you can serve them with the sauce of your preference.
