Cooking With Teens: Kolak

Cooking with a teenager is very interesting. They have creativity but also do not want to be too complicated in cooking. Cooking is a basic skill. No need to be an expert, but to be able to process ingredients into good food.
Yesterday I taught my son to cook a famous dessert from our country: kolak. This dessert is very common served with traditional Indonesian dishes. Easy to make, with simple ingredients.

1 liter of water
200 ml of coconut milk. I use Kara's instant coconut milk because it doesn’t need to squeeze the coconut
20 medium size bananas, sliced
200 gr palm sugar
3 tbs sugar
A pinch of salt

Put all ingredients into a pan. Boil while stirring until boiling. Done! Very easy! You can serve
kolak while it is warm, or you can serve it cold.

This dessert is widely consumed throughout the years, and especially popular during the holy month of Ramadan to break the fast.
