Banana In coconut milk ('Kluai Buat Chi' )

Thai cuisine is known for hot and spicy flavours!!!Thai Cuisine is known for being hot and spicy and its balance of five fundamental flavors in each dish or the overall meal - hot (spicy), sour, sweet, salty and bitter (optional). (source:Wikipedia)

I have been to Thai restaurants, not a great fan of their food. My personal favourite is fried rice and Thai red curry!!!!. This is the first time I am trying something from Thai cuisine. I wanted to cook something simple for my first attempt. Coconut milk seems to be basis for every recipe in Thai cuisine. When i was looking for recipes, I found out a dessert ' Banana in coconut milk'!!!. It was very simple and took only few minutes to prepare it. Kluai Buat Chi Recipe can be found here.

I am gonna make a dessert, Kluai Buat chi from Thai cuisine for A.W.E.D -Thailand hosted by Dk's Culinary Bazaar.


3 Ripe Bananas
1 cup sugar
2 cups coconut milk
1 cup coconut cream
pinch of salt


Peel the banana and slit according to ur choice. I like round shape so i cut it round.

The original recipe calls for cutting vertically into half, then once again cut the pieces horizontally into half. Each banana is cut to four pieces.

Pour the coconut milk in a non-stick pan over medium heat.After the milk starts boiling lower the heat .Add Banana and cook till tender. I used ripe banana and it took about 6mins to become tender. Take care not to over cook banana coz it will make them soft and bloated.
Remove the pan from heat, Add sugar & salt and mix well.
Finally add coconut cream and transfer to serving bowl. Let it cool down to room temperature before serving!!



Simple yet so elegant and rich! Only Thai food can bring about that. Love this..never tried this before..will make a bowl soon :) thanks for sending this my way for AWED
