I had this recipe in my list of desserts to do quite some time ago. Now, I cannot defer to prepare it anymore cos’ I would like to link this post to Little Thumbs Up Event - October 2015 theme on ‘Coconut’.
This dessert is delicious serve warm or hot. Best to serve it once cooked if you do not like the bananas to taste sourish. The cooked bananas do taste a little sourish afterwards. Here, I used Cavendish Bananas bought from Tesco instead of Pisang Raja. You can use any cooking bananas of your choice and perhaps it may not be sourish.
Overall, this is a delicious dessert that it not too sweet yet tasty.
Recipe adapted from Yum Yum Magazine No. 91 [modified]

Kimmy, my late grandma used to cook pengat pisang. Though I like the fragrant gravy, I don't like the pisang because it is too soft for me.

Hi Phong Hong, yes the gravy is very fragrant. I like the taste. I was afraid the bananas will be too soft to my liking. Once they are cooked, I off the heat and did not cover the pot to prevent further cooking.

Hi Kimmy,

Shame on me to say that this dessert is completely new to me. Glad that I have discovered this wonderful recipe from you.
