How to Make Style Kota Cinta of Banana  pinchers

First we first prepare banana. Open banana from the skin, then pinchers it. You can pinchers banana whatever you like to do it. In my own way, I do like this, I put banana in center of plastic warp. Then I push till it pinchers.

After that, let’s we skip about banana pinchers. Let’s making custard. Boiled palm sugar with water, until sugar dissolves. After all sugar gone or become water. Enter  the coconut milk then the cornstarch (before we put the cornstarch, we put it in the glass or mug and give a little water. After mix cornstarch and water) Put it it in the saucepan.  Stir until  thickened with the small fire. Beware do not  get broken coconut milk. So, stir it without stoping until cook.

Custard is already, let’s continue about banana.  Prepare a non-stick frying pan, pinchers bananas. Then baked on a skillet that was smeared butter first. Back and forth until slightly charred banana. Depend on you, you like it to cook or just medium. 

Then, cut banana which already cooked. I love using scissors to cut it become small. Then,  pour the custard and bananas, add milo milk up the custard or you can change it with anything you like, for example chocolate chip, cheese, etc. Now, time for taste the delicious banana pinchers.
