Kolak Pisang/Sweet Plantains in Coconut milk

Plantains/Banana plantains or Pisang Tanduk are very close relative of banana. The fruit looks exactly like normal banana but longer, larger and often cooked before eaten. It´s highly nutritious, good source of potassium, vit A, C and energy booster. Use plantains with yellow or black skin. In this stage, it would become ripe. Plantain is cooked in various ways ( boiled, fried etc), served as a side dish, snacks or as a dessert.

Ingredients:
4 banana plantains
1 can palm´s seeds (without water)
350 g gula jawa/palm sugar
400 ml coconut milk
400 ml water
1 cinnamon stick (4cm)

directions: peel and cut the plantains into small rounds. Boil water with palm sugar and then sift. Pour in the palm sugar syrup in a sauce pan together with banana plantains. Add coconut milk and cinnamon stick. Bring to boil and let simmer for about 10 - 15 minutes.

This must be a lovely dessert. BUt do I need the ripe plantains for it? Or do you think the normal green one is ok to use? Thanks!

tapi kalo gak ada pisang tanduk, bisa kan ya aku ganti dengan ubi... karena di supermarkt Asia aku belum nemu harta karun bernama pisang tanduk (tapi gak tau juga kalo ownernya sempet 'mampir' ke Kedai Hamburg n liat resep ini trus dia langsung jualan pisang tanduk...hahaha)
