Banana sticky rice w/cinnamon coconut sauce


Rice mixture 1 cup coconut milk 1 cup water 1 cup glutinous rice (uncooked) 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup white sugar 1 tsp. salt 2 bananas

Topping 1/2 cup shredded coconut 1/4 cup sliced almonds 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

How to make Banana sticky rice w/cinnamon coconut sauce

Begin by heating sugars, salt, 1 cup of coconut milk, 1 cup of water, and 1 cup of rice in a pot over medium heat. Stir rice while bringing to a full boil, then partially cover and cook for 20 minutes or until moisture is fully evaporated. Leave pot on the stove but turn off the burner. Give the rice a stir. Place the lid fully on the pot and allow the rice to self steam for 10 minutes. Remove lid and allow to cool to room temperature.

Take a piece of foil about 1 foot wide and place half the rice mixture onto it, creating a square about 1/2" thick. The rice should be the same length as your banana. Place banana at one end of rice and use the foil to roll the banana up until the sticky rice is fully wrapped around the banana. Seal both ends and place into a steamer. Repeat with remaining mixture and banana. Steam over medium heat for 20 minutes. Remove and allow to cool to room temperature. I placed mine into the freezer for about 30 minutes.

To create the dipping sauce, combine the remaining cup of coconut milk, flour, cinnamon, vanilla, cayenne and 2 tablespoons white sugar. Bring to a boil and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

For the topping, place coconut, almonds, and sesame seeds on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake in a 350 oven for 7-10 minutes, or until mix becomes lightly browned.

I tried unwrapping one of the rice rolls and realized it probably wasn't going to work. It was very sticky and started to fall apart. I rolled it back up in the foil, then used a sharp knife to slice it into pieces. The foil gave it the stability it needed and cutting was much easier. Before serving, I sprinkled the tops with a bit of the topping. You can either drizzle the top with sauce or dip the roll into the sauce.

    I like the idea, sounds good...Sort of like a Banana/Coconut Maki Roll...LOL...Maybe omitting the coconut milk from the Sauce could be an idea since youve already got it in the rice...I think making a toffee/cinnamon Sauce could be the bomb...Any how very creative. P/s the rice you used is the Sticky glutinous thai sticky rice right?
