When Siti came over to my house with some
Nagasari cakes (steamed banana rice cakes), I was pleasantly surprised how yummy it was. Creamy on the outside with a white puddingy texture and sweet in the inside, it makes a wonderful snack anytime of the day. Made only from flour, coconut milk, sugar and bananas, and wrapped in banana leaves - it's a wonder how the simple ingredients can produce such a delicious dessert! And the best part is, it takes only 10 minutes to prepare. Try it, I'm sure you're going to enjoy this traditional Indonesian dessert. Thank you Siti for the Nagasari recipe.


  • 6 ripe bananas (suitable for steaming such as pisang raja, pisang nangka, etc)
  • 3 cups rice flour
  • 3 cups coconut milk, squeezed from 1 grated coconut
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Banana leaves, for wrapping

1. Slice bananas lengthwise into half. 2. Combine flour, coconut milk, sugar and salt in a pot. Cook over medium heat, constantly stirring until mixture is thick. 3. Spoon approximately 1-2 tablespoons of mixture onto banana leaf. Place a slice of banana on mixture, and cover banana with another 1-2 tablespoons of mixture. 4. Wrap mixture with banana leaves neatly. 5. Steam for 25 minutes or until cooked. Serve warm or cold.

*There are no special ways of wrapping the rice cakes in banana leaves. Wrap it in any style you like.
