Jn Grilled Banana in Sticky Rice with Savory Coconut Sauce – chuối nếp nướng

One of dad’s favorites… and mine! The surprise treat enveloped inside the charred banana leaves is so aromatic! Even better when served with the savory coconut sauce. Such fond memories of the ladies in the alley in my neighborhood in Vietnam grilling them over an open charcoal fire. A must try!11093267_10152591536197242_22740493_n.jpg
