IMG_0854

I made this Indonesian dessert last week for the easter menu.  Based on plantains and sweet potatoes in a think coconut sauce it is delicious.  The original recipe is made of typical local ingredients, which weren’t available for me, so I made some “European” changes.

Ingredients (4 persons):

– 2 ripe plantains (or normal bananas if don’t have them available)

– 250 gr sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into cubes

– 200 gr dark brown sugar

– 600 ml water

– 400 ml coconut milk

– a packet of vanilla sugar

– some vanilla extract

Directions:

– Peel the plantains and cut them into pieces of 1 cm.

– Add the brown sugar to the water and boil it.

– add the plantains and the sweet potatoes and cook ‘al dente’.

– add the coconut milk, the vanilla sugar and the vanilla extract, and let it simmer until the sauce is well bond.

You can serve it hot or cold.
