This recipe was inspired by the description of the food in a book titled The Airmen and the Headhunters, in which American airmen during WWII were downed in the jungles of Bornea. They survived only by the kindness and generosity of the Dayaks, native Borneans of the inland jungle. This is very sweet, so it makes a good dessert.
- 3⁄4 cup white rice
- 1⁄2 cup cream of coconut (found in Hispanic food aisle)
- 2 bananas, sliced
- 2 -3 tablespoons shredded coconut
- Boil the rice according to the directions on the box or bag.
- Stir in the cream of coconut, bananas, and shredded coconut.
I just made this, BEFORE, I ever saw the recipe. My variation was 2 cups jasmine rice, shaved coconut(no added sugar), milk and 3 tiny hot red peppers from the yard. I also made it in my rice cooker....be aware it will get dark on the bottom if held too long due to the sweet nature of the recipe.....It was oh so good!!!!!
