Puerto Rican Cornmeal Dumplings
|2 c||fine cornmeal|
|1 c||coconut milk, unsweetened|
|1/4 tsp||anise seed|
|1/4 c||honey (some people use molasses- i don't care for it.)|
|1 pkg||banana leaves (sheets)|
These dumplings are a family favorite, especially with stewed codfish. You can also serve with stewed beans or chili.
You can find banana leaves in the GOYA (brand) frozen foods section. Wash them very well under warm running water & cut to size with kitchen shears.
Form dough into 8 rolls (like sausages)
Roll the leaf and tie each end with string.
Cook for 30 minutes.
Remove from water, cut string from ends and serve. (The cornmeal rolls will slide right out of banana leaf.
