I decided to choose the easiest sweet dish that I have ever tried in ages now, I guess!!! Kluai Nam Wa is basically a banana dessert, where a particular type of banana, known as kluai nam wa is cooked in a concoction of coconut milk and palm jaggery till soft. By just reading that, you can imagine the flavors. I go all flat for anything with coconut milk and if it has bananas in it, then I am game for it! I replaced the palm jaggery with brown sugar, just to make it slightly healthy – yeah, just to make myself feel good about it! Thank you so much Sangeetha, for this awesome suggestion. Everybody in the family really loved it! Recipe adapted from here
- 400 ml can coconut milk

- Combine the coconut milk, vanilla, brown sugar and salt in a saucepan and keep on simmer till it gets hot.
