Famous Recipes – GRILLED BANANAS

GRILLED BANANAS

       
Got 10 minutes to spare? You can make this almost ridiculously, easy dessert. Bananas, oranges and cinnamon make a superb combination.

1 orange
6 – 8 medium-sized ripe bananas (pisang raja, mas or berangan)
1 – 2 tbsp butter
Sugar to sprinkle
Ground cinnamon

1. Using a sharp knife, peel a few strips of rind from the orange. (Be careful not to take too much of the white pith). Stack and shred finely – you want about 2 tablespoons of rind. Squeeze orange to obtain juice.

2. Peel and split bananas into halves lengthwise. Choose a not-too-large heatproof dish (any shape) with a depth of about 4 cm/2 inches.

3. Arrange a single layer of bananas on the base of the dish. Sprinkle half the shredded rind, about a loose tablespoon of sugar and a dusting of ground cinnamon. Dot with bits of butter. Arrange another layer of bananas over. Pour the juice over and sprinkle on the rest of the peel, more sugar and cinnamon.

4. Preheat grill and place your dish under it, quite close to the grill. Cook on high heat for 15 – 20 minutes or until top is nicely browned and caramelized in parts. Serve warm with whipped cream, custard or vanilla ice cream.

Famous Recipes – LEPAT PISANG (Steamed banana parcels)

LEPAT PISANG (Steamed banana parcels)

       
300 g (peeled weight), ripe bananas (pisang mas, raja or rastali)
Pinch of salt
60 g palm sugar (gula melaka), finely chopped or shaved
3 tbsp thick coconut milk
4 tbsp plain flour
2 tbsp cornflour
2 tbsp grated coconut (optional)
1 frond banana leaf

1. Mash bananas in a small mixing bowl. Add salt, palm sugar, coconut, flours and grated coconut (if used). Stir, without beating, until well mixed.

2. Cut two sides of the banana leaf away from the stem. Quickly pass over a gas flame (the heat will soften the leaf and make it more pliable for use as a wrapper). Cut leaves into rectangles approximately 15 cm X 10 cm, trimming the pieces with scissors.

3. Position a sheet of banana leaf on a work top in front of you – long side facing you. Place 1 – 2 tablespoons of the mixture (depending on size of packets you want) in the middle of the leaf. Fold top and bottom towards the centre, overlapping them. Neatly fold left and right ends, tucking them under to enclose the banana mixture completely.

4. Arrange packets on a steamer tray in a single layer, leaving a little space between the parcels for steam to come through. Cook over rapidly-boiling water for 15 – 20 minutes.

5. Serve warm or at room temperature. (Makes 12 – 15 parcels.)
