Preparation of lepat pisang (steamed banana packets)
Get your steamer ready. While waiting for the water to boil, mash all the bananas in a bowl. Add Gula Java palm sugar, flour, tapioca flour, corn starch, salt and mix well. Set aside.
Cut the banana leaves into a rectangle about 15cm X 10 cm. You don't have to be accurate on this. Soak the banana leaves in boiling water for a couple of seconds. Just enough to soften it so that it can be work with easily. Then wipe it off with a dish towel or paper towel.
Take 1 banana leaf and add about 1 to 2 tbsp of the mash banana mixture right in the center. Fold the 2 ends of banana leaf like you would fold a letter covering the the banana mixture and carefully tuck under the left and right end of the banana leaf. There... you got yourself a cute banana packet! :)
Place the banana packets on the steamer and steam for about 10 to 15 minutes depending on how big your banana packets are.
