Kao Tom Mad – Steamed Glutinous Rice Cakes with Banana Recipe

Ingredients :

  • 11/cups (300 g) glutinous rice, soaked in water for 1 hour and drained
  • 2 cups (500 ml) thick coconut milk
  • 4 tablespoons sugar

Pinch of salt

  • 1/2 cup (3 oz/ l00 g) dried red beans, soaked overnight then boiled in 3 cups water until soft
  • 4 small or 2 large ripe bananas, sliced
  • 8 pieces banana leaf or aluminum foil, about 6 x 10 in (12 x 25 cm)

Method :

  1. Mix the soaked, drained glutinous rice with coconut milk, sugar and salt in a nonstick saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring constantly until the rice is cooked and all the coconut milk absorbed. This should take about 15 minutes. Leave to cool.
  2. Take a piece of banana leaf and put a tablespoon of the rice and a teaspoon of red beans on it. Place a slice of banana on top, cover with more rice and red beans, then fold up the banana leaf and secure with a toothpick. Repeat until all bananas are used up.
  3. Steam for 25 minutes and set aside to cool.
  4. Unwrap the banana leaves and serve.
