Kluai Nam Wa - Bananas In Coconut Milk - A Thai Dessert

I love to try dishes from various Indian States as well as from other countries. This is the reason why I joined International Food Challenge a lovely group by two lovely blogger Saras and Shobana . In this group every month we are given selected recipes from any one country by that month's host.

 Our this month's host is Sangeetha Priya and she has suggested some wonderful n yummy recipes from Thai Cuisine.

I selected this easy n delicious dessert called  Kluai Nam Wa which in simple english means Bananas in Coconut Milk.

This simple dessert is unbelievably yummy and the coconut milk lends it a beautiful flavor and aroma.
Maharashtrians have a similar dish called Kelyache Shikran  (bananas in sweet milk ).

 But this Thai dessert is equally easy n yet exotic.

Loved the dessert Sangeetha .







Ingredients :


2 ...........................bananas
2 cups....................freshly scraped coconut
1 cup ...................warm water

Again repeat and take out the juice of coconut.

Mix both the juices and add jaggery and salt to it.

Boil this on a low to medium flame till somewhat thick .
