Kuih Lepat Pisang

Bought a banana seedling from Pasar Tani(farmer's market) to plant outside our fence beside the drain. It grew up very healthy and fast. The leaves were big enough for me to make some deserts.  So, I bought a bunch of pisang awak (a type of banana for making local deserts) and decided to make kuih pisang lepat(folded banana desert).  Cut two of the banana leaves from the plant, cut into 15cm by 15cm sizes, washed, par-boiled and wide dry ready for use.

My only banana tree

The ingredients

10 bananas
30 grams wheat flour
1/2 of coconut (only the white part)
1/4 teaspoon of salt (mix into the coconut white)
Smashed the bananas.  In a mixing bowl, put in the smashed bananas, slowly add in the flour, mix well.

 Place two tablespoon of the mixture on a piece of the dried banana leave, then put a tablespoon of white coconut on it, fold up carefully into shape. Repeat with the rest of the mixture.

Steam for twenty minutes. Serve hot or cold.
