This savoury dish is perfect to take on picnics. Inside each banana parcel is rice and beans and fatty pork, packaged in a way that makes it easy to eat. I find these not very interesting on their own and like to eat them with meat strips fried in garlic.

100 gms Sticky Rice
50 gms Pork With Fat & Rind
30 gms Black Beans
30 gms Red Beans
2 Teaspoons Salt
