      This is the first time I've cooked plantains and I liked them. I used my new deep-fat fryer for frying them. My two friends and I enjoyed this dish as an appetizer on the sofa together with a mango daiquiri. We first forgot to add the cilantro because the girl who was responsible for this recipe (I hosted a vegetarian cooking evening) doesn't like it. The dip certainly is improved by the addition of the fresh coriander. We loved the mango in the dip, but would use less sour cream next time to even taste more of the mango. We would also add a hotter chilli. Thank you for convincing me to cook plantains and good luck in the contest!

      Wow, this dip just tastes like summer to me. The blend of mango, corriander (cilantro) and chilli is a real winner.... I imagine it would be equally good with seafood and chicken as well as chips. I used large potatoes, suitable for frying as plantain isn't available in my neck of the woods. A very yummy recipe indeed.
