Chek Khtih Chek Khtih is a traditional Khmer desert. Khmer people not only make it for the family’s memberbut sometime we cook it and share it to our friends, relative, neighbors or sometime we also take it to the pagoda in occasional day like: moral day, Pchum ben day...etc. It is a real taste of Khmer desert.

  INGREDIENT

  • 8 bananas (plantain)
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 tbsp small size tapioca pearl (more if you prefer a thicker consistency)
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (if you prefer )
  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds (optional)

  RECIPE

  1. In a pot bring water to a boil and add tapioca pearls. Cook for 2-3 minutes then simmer for another 10 minutes or until the pearls turns translucent (no whites). Stir occasionally so they don’t stick to the bottom. Larger tapioca will take longer to cook.
  2. Meanwhile, peel banana and first cut them lengthwise then in half on an angle. You should be get 4 pieces out of each banana. Repeat with the rest of the bananas and set aside.
  3. Once tapioca pearls turns translucent add the remainder ingredients and cook for about 5-7 minutes stirring. Then simmer low until the sauce thickens. Again, stir occasionally so they don’t stick to the bottom of the pot. Taste and adjust the sweetness to your preference. Finally add the bananas. Cook it till the banana is soft, but not mushy.
