Malaysian Banana Pancake

Its all about being a Malaysian for me. Yes people. I won't compromise my country, neither will I compromise our Malaysian cuisine, no matter what, for none (Ikan Asam Pedas, Prawn Fritters, Gado Gado/Vegetable Platter & Prawn Mee) . Well, what do you expect? Though, initially, believe me, due to the influence of fellow Malaysians who not only have migrated elsewhere, but also speak really favourably of the country they are in, where else do Malaysians run to anyway other than to Australia, or maybe a small fraction to US, or UK or even New Zealand, I too wanted run away from Malaysia (Malaysian Fried Wings, Prawn Mango Curry, Fried Wanton & Potato Anchovies Fried). Basically, because I thought I will have a better favorable life elsewhere. In the end, you know what I found out? Almost, if not all, most of Malaysians who have migrated are hypocrites. They are under denial. For all the bitching they do about Malaysia, some still will and won't stop, they can't accept the reality that life sucks massively in other countries too.

Come of it people. Its the same daily grind of rushing back and forth from work, oh please, traffic jam is madness as well and people are now sly, cunning and all about money power everywhere. Malaysian who have migrated will never admit it. You know why? They can't let go of our Malaysian saving the face and Malaysian food loving culture (Grilled Mackerel, Ikan Masak Belacan, Roasted Pork & Chicken Sambal Sandwich). They must put a show by portraying that they are far out having a ball of a time. But we all know that the reality is otherwise (Fried Prawn MeeFried Lotus Root & Nasi Kerabu).   

So, once I digested that life evens up for everybody wherever we are, why should I also give up my rights as a Malaysian and be categorised as a migrant in Australia, I started to love Malaysia more. More and more. Having had my fair share of globe seeking (Venice, Perth, Norway & Turkey), it further reinforced into me that nothing like our Malaysian food (Kuih Kosui). Take this Malaysian Banana Pancake for an example. Do we actually need imported exclusive bananas, nor expensive maple syrup or berries? Of course not. Try this my Malaysian Banana Pancake. Made with Malaysian boleh ingredients for the true sincere sweet delight (Banana Bread & Malaysian Banana Fritters). Pancakes paired alongside Gula Melaka syrup, fresh graded coconut and some fresh banana slices atop. Hallelujah!   

3 ripe bananas - mashed
1 banana - sliced and keep aside
1 cup self-raising flour (or all purpose flour with a pinch of baking soda or baking powder)
Milk (any type) - as needed
1 egg
Butter - as needed

To pair with 
Palm sugar/Gula Melaka - simmer some palm sugar with water for the thick syrup
Grated fresh coconut - as needed

Add flour and egg into mashed bananas. Gently whisk/stir. 
Then pour milk bit by bit, keep whisking for the consistency of a batter to make pancake.
Heat a pan and add butter.
Scoop some of the batter, pour and circle out for a pancake. 
Turn to cook on the other side.
Remove and keep aside.
Do the same to the rest of the batter.
Place pancake on a serving plate/tray.
Top up/scatter over the pancake.
Dig in lovingly with the palm sugar and coconut. 
How about showing aplenty love by trending alongside "nava-k" on every other social media please? Your support is the utter rocket to my happiness. Thank you everyone.
