There are many ways that you can enjoy your bananas. You can eat it as it is...use for pie fillings...buat pengat, cekodok, fry them till crispy or bake a banana cake. One of my favourite banana dish is Sira Pisang or bananas in heavy syrup . My mom used to make this Sira Pisang and this recipe is from my mom which I believe is not any different than any other recipe. It's perfect to be served as dessert or just have it for tea.
Sira Pisang (bananas cooked in heavy syrup)
5 bananas , halved (I used pisang abu )
1/2 cup of water
1/2 cup of sugar (if your not a sweet tooth, lessen the sugar amount)
5 cloves (bunga cengkih)
1 piece of pandan leaf.
-In a pot, arrange the bananas and then add in the water ,sugar and cloves.
- cover the pot and cook under low heat until the syrup is concentrated.
- Once the bananas are cooked (if it is soft,that means it is cooked through), turn offthe heat and let it cool before serving it. Sira Pisang is best served cold.
