    1. Combine the flour, bicarb and salt in a bowl. Add warm water, stirring constantly, until a pancake-like batter forms, about 2 minutes. Dip plantain slices into the batter.
    2. Heat vegetable oil in a deep frying pan or wok over medium heat. Cook plantains, in batches, for 2 minutes or until golden. Flip and cook for 1 minute more. Drain on paper towels.
