NAGASARI (STEAMED DESSERT) AND AN AWARD

Photobucket

This is my favorite traditional kuih of South East Asia. Normally it is wrapped in banana leaves but now I am using plastic sheet to cover them.

The mixture of rice flour, corn starch, coconut milk, sugar and salt is pre-cooked until thickened on stove top then complete the process by steaming them. It can also be served cold if you want. The recipe below yields 9 pieces. Let's cook this easy dessert.

INGREDIENTS

1 C rice flour removed 1 tablespoon
2 and 1/2 cups coconut milk
1 T corn starch
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 screw pine leaves (optional)
5 bananas cut into 2 lengthwise
9 pieces plastic sheet/banana leaf cut into 8 sq in

METHOD

* Put 2 inches deep of water in a steamer and bring to boil.

* Combine together rice flour, corn starch, sugar, coconut milk, salt and screw pine leaves in a deep pot, stir until smooth.

* Cook and stir regularly until thicken about 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

* Place one tablespoon mixture on the plastic sheet, add the banana and cover with another one tablespoon flour, fold both side neatly and put them into the steamer.

* Complete the rest of the mixture.

* Steam for 30 minutes with medium heat.

* Remove from heat, serve hot or cold.
