How to make :
Heat the coconut milk with the vanilla pod and allow to just come to the boil make sure you didn’t break the coconut milk. In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks with the sugar.
Pour the hot coconut milk over the egg yolks whisking vigorously. When completely mixed in, return to the pan.
Stir over a low heat until the mixture thickens sufficiently to coat the back of a spoon. This will take 5-6 minutes. Drain into a bowl, remove vanilla pods, grab a banana leaf. Give a piece of pandan leaf in it, insert the banana slices and pour the coconut custard. Wrap the banana and custard and steam for 25 minutes. Serve cool or hot
