Step 1: Slice the ends off of each plantain, then slice the unpeeled plantains crosswise into 1 1/2-inch wide circles.
Step 2: Place the plantain slices in a bowl of salted water to soak for 1 hour.
Step 3: After soaking, peel the plantain slices. If the peel does not come off easily, make a slit through the skin with a sharp knife, then peel it off. Place the peeled plantain slices on paper towels and pat dry.
Step 4: In a heavy skillet, heat 1 to 2 inches of vegetable oil to 350 F.
Step 5: Place plantain slices in the oil and cook until golden (the plantain should sizzle gently). Work in batches if necessary and drain on paper towels.
Step 6: Use the bottom of a glass or bottle to flatten the slices of plantain into disks about 1/3- to 1/2-inch thick.
Step 7: Return flattened plantains to the hot oil and fry until a deep golden brown. Drain on paper towels, and sprinkle generously with kosher salt.
Step 8: Serve plantain warm with aji sauce for dipping.
