Kedah folks called this 'Serawa' but those from the Southern part of Malaysia would called this Pengat... a dessert made from sweetened coconut milk... There are varieties of 'Serawa'... we can have this with only bananas.., durian or jack fruit...
This is a simple dessert that I love... as a young child...I would only picked and eat bananas from this serawa... :) Mom would usually whipped this up for our afternoon delight or breaking fast. It is quite heavy with coconut milk, sweet potatoes, yam and banana... the food is 'sinfully rich' ... that is why it is so delicious and yummy...
