Cambodian Tapioca-Banana Pudding

This is a Cambodian recipe that I've learned from a Cambodian-American friend of mine. I'll even eat it for breakfast! It's delicious served warm, can be dressed up with other fruit and is also a refreshing cold dessert.

ingredients

directions

  • Place 2 cups of water in a microwave-safe dish and heat until warm in the microwave, about 2 minutes. Add the tapioca and let stand for 10 minutes. Drain in a sieve. You'll have a mushy puddle o tapioca left over.
  • Pour the remaining water into a saucepan and add the drained tapioca. Bring to a boil, then simmer over medium heat until the tapioca begins to turn transparent. Stir frequently to avoid sticking.
  • When the tapioca is transparent, stir in the bananas, sugar and salt. Simmer for 10 to 15 more minutes, stirring frequently. When the bananas are broken down fairly well, remove from the heat and stir in the coconut milk until well blended. The tapioca pearls will become invisible and the pudding will be the consistency of thick soup. Taste and adjust the sugar if desired.
  • Cool to room temperature or slightly warmer. Stir again before serving.
