HFG tip

Fresh banana leaves should be blanched in boiling water to soften them before use. I use frozen banana leaves which are available in Asian grocery stores; they’re cheap and easy to work with. Defrost the pack, rinse the leaves in cold water and dry with kitchen paper, rub lightly with butter or oil to prevent the food sticking to the leaves. Surplus leaves can be refrozen. If you do not have an Asian store nearby, you could use tin foil but the banana leaves infuse a lovely flavour.
