pisang tanduk (plantain bananas), lemongrass, a Sarawak pineapple, some calamansi & whole lot of bird eye chilies to bring home with me. And this is what I did with the pisang tanduk. Actually, deep frying is the best recipe for pisang tanduk but its not healthy to consume often then. So, I finally decided to make something out of steaming and here it is bananas folding in banana leaf. This is one of the many tradition Malay food made out of steaming in coconut mixture which is so delicious. And suitable for all range of people.
125gm rice flour
70gm tapioca flour
1 cup thick coconut milk
2 cups water
3 pandanus leaves
or a few drops of pandanus essence
*1 banana plantains (pisang tanduk), sliced into pieces
* 12 pieces banana leaves, soften it with hot water then wipe dry
* cooking oil for coating the leaves (optional)
(1) combine all ingredients and whisk till smooth.
(2) add in pandanus leaves and cook over medium heat till mixture became thick. Off the heat once the mixture starting to thicken and keep stirring till mixture turn into smooth thick paste. Discharge the pandanus leaves.
Place a tablespoon of thick paste onto
banana leaf then in a slice of banana and cover it with another spoon of
thick paste. Wrap banana leaf by folding one side to the other, then
fold both end to secure leakage ,looking like a parcel. Finally, steamed parcel for 15 minutes and cool for 30 minutes before serving.
