Another comfort food! Oh... I don't remember when was the last time I ate this food. It has been long time ago. My mom of course she is the one that cooked it for me and I got spoil with her food. In my refrigerator it seems like everything I need to make this food are available. Two important things bananas leaves and Thai Basil of course, it is my favorite.
One think though, don't ask me why I like eating anchovy. My hubby looks at me like... what? are you actually eating those? those are for fishing! LOL
Anyway, here is the simple recipe. I got it from Tabloit Nova.
100 gram coconut flakes
bananas leaves for wrapping
1 candle nut
some of Thai Basil
1/2 tablespoon sugar
Grind shallots, garlics, turmeric and candle nut and set aside.
In a large bowl add anchovy, Thai basil, salt, sugar and coconut flakes.
Take about 2 tablespoons of mixture and wrap in bananas leaves
Steam for about 15 - 20 minutes or until done.
