Pengat Pisang

Indonesian call it Kolak Pisang while Malaysian call it Pengat Pisang. It does not matter what name you want to call it, these are just so good to have. Since you can have these Pengat Pisang hot or cold, it makes it suitable for all seasons. All year round my friends and throughout the whole day too. I would enjoy a bowl of these Pengat Pisang for breakfast, tea-time, snacking and dessert. On a different day, of course. I hope you will try this delicacies and enjoy it as much as I do.



Pengat Pisang

2 ripe plantain, sliced
3 1/2oz palm sugar
2 pandan leaves, knotted if long
1 1/2 cups coconut milk
1 1/2 cups water
Pinch of salt
3 tbsp small tapioca pearl, soaked in hot/warm water (optional)

1. Put all ingredients in a pot except the plantain and tapioca pearl. Boil on medium heat while stirring continuously.

2. Once boiled, add the plantain and tapioca pearl. Stir occasionally, taste. Add palm sugar if necessary let it simmer for 30min.

Enjoy hot or refrigerate overnight to enjoy as cold dessert.

Pengat pisang is my weakness. I like to add cut up sweet potato. With pearl sago is good too. Yummy!

Norma, alternatively you can use regular bananas as well. ;)

Mamasita, sekali sekala apa salahnya. Weekend makan and weekday diet. lol.

Thanks Lubna.

Hi Farina

Thanks for sharing. Yet, another simple recipe for me to follow. I am waiting for my stuff to arrive (which includes my unopened packets of sago) from the States and once I have the house setup and equipped, I should be able to get back to trying out new recipes.

I will be back for more recipes. :)

Jo said...

Salt N Turmeric said...

Ida, durian tak musim ke? Boleh buat pengat durian. ;)

Mama, i pun memang tak suka terlalu manis. Sebab tu kena letak gula tu sikit sikit.

Somuffins, musim orang buat pengat pisang kot ni? lol.

AnakM, do you eat it hot or cold?

Jacqui, this time berapa lama before you stuff arrive from here to Germany? Hope you'll get them soon.

Jo, thank you. If you decide to make these, make sure your plantain is ripe. ;)

Maya, pengat pisang is so easy to make. Only need to cut the pisang. The rest campak aje dalam pot.

Cynthia said...

Such sweet temptation.

Salt N Turmeric said...

Cynthia, indeed! Have you had anything like this before?

AnakM said...

Mula-mula makan panas, then leftover dalam fridge makan satu round lagi sejuk :)

Jun @ IndoChine Kitchen said...

Same ingredients. Different name. Loving it. I totally forgot about the sago part. Should add those next time I make my own batch, Farina

Salt N Turmeric said...

AnakM, so you like it both as hot and also cold dessert ya?

Jun, hehe I love sago but this is the 1st time I cook using them. Usually somebody else would do the cooking for me. lol.
