This is another favorite tea snack of the Perakians :) I used to buy this banana snack called Lempeng Pisang from our canteen before I learned how to make them...love it ! And surprisingly, it is very easy to make them :) My colleague gave me some tips and I managed to make it soft and bananalicious. I used the recipe from HomeKeration recommended by Wendy . Instead of mashing it so fine, I mashed it coarsely so that you can feel the banana bits when you eat the lempeng and lessen the flour so that you can taste more of the banana and the texture of the lempeng will be softer. Thank you to Pn. Amizan for her tips :) Read on for the step by step pictorial guide on how to make these lovely soft and bananalicious tea snack banana leave wrapped Perak cake.
mash 10 bananas coarsely in a mixing bowl,
add 1/2 cup flour ( I reduced by 1 heaped tbsp)
and stir together till well mixed,
spread a few spoonfuls of banana mixture on the
banana leaf and topped with grated coconut and sugar mixture
and fold the leaf into half.
grill on a griddle or flat pan till browned on both sides -
5 mins on each sides should be sufficient
to cook the mixture
I love it a bit burnt on the outside and
soft on the inside...this is so yummilicious :)
