Going Bananas




The longer we are here the more it becomes home. One of the things that I have not encountered before coming to Cambodia is “Jake jchee-in”. Translated it means Banana Fried. It starts with a Banana that they flatten, then place it into a batter that includes sesame seeds, then fry it in cooking oil. It is quite yummy. Even everyone in the house agrees that it is a good treat. I can’t think of many things that I can get 13 people to agree is tasty. They are also very inexpensive at 12.5 cents each. An all round good find. I hear they make them in other places in the world also.

When I was in China, we had a fried-banana dish, though I don't remember sesame seeds. It was wonderful, though I burned my mouth a couple of times: "Be careful -- it's hot!". :)

In every country there's always great food. I can only imagine antartica's food. Simply AMAZING.
