Falang Roll
from: Pikake

This roll originated in Laos, and means Foreigner Roll. I found the recipe in an issue of Saveur magazine.


  • 3 cups thai sticky rice
  • 3/4 cup crunchy peanut butter, softened
  • 2 bananas, peeled and sliced lengthwise
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seed
  • molasses or sugar, for dipping
  • Cook or steam rice.

Cover a bamboo sushi-rolling mat tightly with plastic wrap.

Moisten your fingertips with water and gently spread out on quarter of the rice onto the mat into a 4"x7" rectangle.

Spread 3 tbsp peanut butter evenly over rice, then place 3 pieces of banana along the side closest to you.

Using the mat to help you, roll the rice over and around the bananas to form a tight sushi roll, pressing down firmly to seal the roll.

Sprinkle roll with some sesame seeds and cut crosswise into 6 equal pieces.

Repeat process with remaining ingredients.

Use the molasses/sugar for dipping.
