Bananas in Coconut Syrup ( Gluiy Churm )


A very simple dessert, bananas in a sweet sauce with slightly salty coconut milk. It's typical in Thailand to add salt to desserts to balance the sweetness. For extra richness use coconut cream, the thicker top layer of coconut milk.

4-5 Bananas
50 gms Sugar
200 ml Water
50 ml Coconut Milk
1/3 Teaspoon Salt

1. Boil the water with the sugar until dissolved.
2. Cut the bananas into halves and add to the boiling syrup and cook for 5 minutes. Set the sauce and bananas to one side.
3. In another saucepan, heat the coconut milk gently together with the salt. You just want to warm through the coconut milk and dissolve the salt, no more. Do not let it boil!
4. To serve place some of the banana in a dish with some of the sugar syrup and spoon over the warm coconut milk.
