Khao tom mat is a Thai street food made of sweet sticky rice cakes filled with banana, black beans and then steamed in banana leaf parcels. Eaten both as a sweet snack or as a meal in itself, the parcels are often given to monks as food offerings at the beginning of Buddhist lent (Khao Phansa).
This classic Thai dessert is great warm, at room temperature, cold, or topped with crushed ice. It’s also pretty easy to make. You need baby or nino bananas, though; regular Cavendish bananas turn all mushy and weird in the simmering syrup.
