This Bananas in Syrup was tempting while perusing ThaiTable website. Even more tempting was the recipe only ask for 3 ingredients, 1 part sugar to 2 parts water, and of course, the bananas.
I only did half a recipe., so below is the modified version. Once Gluay Cheum has cooled down to slightly warm, I tried a piece. It was not sweet at all, and the banana was a bit chewy. However, the texture turned very chewy at night.
Yield: 3 servings
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup water
3 Pisang Awak
1/ Combine water and sugar in a pot, then heat up till sugar dissolves to form a thin syrup.
2/ Add in banana pieces and let the banana cook in syrup over very low heat for 60 to 90 minutes.
3/ Serve warm or at room temperature.
a/ Stir the bananas from time to time to stop them from burning.
b/ As the syrup gets more concentrated, add a tablespoon of water here and there toward the end of the process3
