1/4 cup Butter
Oil for frying
Mix butter and garlic in a small bowl and set aside.
In a medium sized, heavy saucepan, heat the oil for frying. While the oil is heating, make small patties out of the grated plantains, using about 1/4 cup at a time, pressing firmly together.
Fry until golden brown, turning once, and then drain on paper towels. Repeat until all patties are cooked.
Brush one side of the patties with the garlic butter before serving.
