Recipe for Palusami
Palusami

Ingredients

Young taro leaves. (or Ceylon Spinach, silverbeet etc)
Thick coconut cream.
Onion
Banana leaf (or foil)
Breadfruit leaf (not needed if you are using an oven)

 

Instructions

Lightly fry onion and mix with coconut cream. Spread coconut cream onto each taro leaf and stack them into a fist sized pile. Wrap in larger leaf to make a neat parcel. Wrap in a wilted banana leaf or foil and bake in a moderate oven for 30 minutes. If you cook this in coals, wrap in a breadfruit leaf to prevent charring.

[This recipe has very strong memories as I learned it in Samoa from my Samoan neighbour, who supervised me through the process. We made the coconut cream from scratch, grating the coconut with a hand grater, and occasionally my fingers. It is really delicious, but when you grate the coconut the recipe is quite time consuming.

I had eaten Palusami with relish at several Samoan feasts, before I made it myself and only later, after my cooking lesson, I learned to respect the effort that went into its production.]
