This Indonesian traditional snack can be easily found at traditional market or bakery in Central Java or Yogyakarta. I do not know why this snack is called as Nagasari. “Naga” is an Indonesian word for “dragon”. But, this sweet snack is not corresponded to dragon… 🙂

Here it is the recipe.




(servings : 25 pieces)

Ingredients :

  • 25 slices ripe plantain (approx. 0.5 cm thick)
  • 2 cup of rice flour (1 cup = 200 cc)
  • 1200 cc creamy coconut milk
  • 6 table spoons of granulated sugar
  • 1/3 tea spoon of salt
  • ½ tea spoon of pandan paste
  • 3 pandan leaves
  • 25 sheets of banana leave or baking paper to wrap (size approx. 20 cm x 20 cm)

Directions :

  1. Mix together rice flour, granulated sugar, salt, pandan leaves and coconut milk in a pan.
  2. Heat the mixture and stir it until it turns into porridge. Put it aside.
  3. Half the porridge. Let the first half in white colour.
  4. Pour pandan paste into the remaining porridge to make it green-coloured. Mix it well.
  5. Take 1 sheet of banana leave or baking paper, and put 1 slice of ripe plantain in the middle of the sheet.
  6. Pour ½ table spoon of white porridge and ½ table spoon of the green one. Wrap it well (all of the ingredient should be covered perfectly). Repeat it until the porridge and plantain are finished.
  7. Steam the Nagasari until cooked for about 20 minutes.
