At a little family-run restaurant called Moonlight, lit only by tiny candles and a necklace of miniature coloured lights garlanding a large pot plant, we were once given - as an extra to our meal - bananas cooked in coconut with a hint of lime. The bananas in Burma are far better than any we get here so I have added a little cardamom and salt to enhance the dish. All over Asia, salt is often added to coconut milk in sweet things - it really brings out the flavours.
