personally,i serve plantain as a side dish/dessert for breakfast/ make it a dessert, after cutting the plaintain sprinkle demerara sugar on the plaintain and fry.this adds extra caramel on the outside and sweetens the plantain in a better way.

liar.dark plantain isn't always have to squeeze it too see if its soft and the softer it is the is if u want hard but dark ones can trick u by actually being very hard.People may prefer different colored plantain but i myself like it golden.Plus plantain and fried egg is really nice too.If u use a deep fryer it is all colored everywhere. His ones look raw in the middle. You can do anything with plantain, roast then boil them, etc.
