Grilled Choco Bananas
Bananas are good for us. Full of vitamins and a good source of potassium (that's until I am done with them and turned them bad. LOL)
I miss the bananas generally found in Indonesia, especially the big ones (pisang raja), perfect for banana fritters/other sweet snacks. Since I couldn't find those here in Hong Kong, I had to settle for these small ones (just about 10-12 cm long), they have the most similar texture and taste to the ones I wanted. Perfect. They just need my magical touch to make 'em sinfully yummy in no time.
Preheat oven to 200C. Simply peel the skin off, slice 'em in half, lay them on oven tray, slather them with butter, and sprinkle some chocolate (chips, powder or rice bits) generously. You can also add a mountain of grated cheese (this is how we normally do them in Indonesia), bake until golden brown. I dusted some chocolate powder onto them. Perfect for afternoon tea time. :)
