Chef’s Kitchen - Clove Infused Poached Bananas

Serves: 5-8 people

4/8 bananas – medium-sized (jackfruit) bananas/small-sized (lady finger) bananas
400ml of water
10 tablespoons of sugar
2 pandan leaves
3 clove buds
1-2 drops of yellow food colouring (optional) 
How To Cook The Dish
  1. Put the water in the pot and boil, then add the sugar and pandan leaves. 
  2. Peel the bananas and slice them using an oblique or roll cut (Hold the blade of the knife perpendicular to the board and cut straight down on the diagonal. Then roll the banana a quarter-turn, and cut straight down again at the same diagonal angle. Continue rolling and cutting in this way all along the length of the banana).
  3. Place the cut bananas into the pot with the now boiling syrup and let them simmer for about 8 minutes.
  4. Add the cloves and food colouring, and stir slowly until mixed well.
  5. Remove the bananas from the pot and let them cool.
  6. Plate and serve.
