GOLLAI ÅPPAN AGA' or BANANAS IN COCONUT MILK
PRINT 3x RECIPE W/METRIC UNITS (not in cookbook)
Gollai, pronounced gogh-lie, means vegetables while gollai åppan, pronounced aw-pan, means to cook something in liquid until the liquid evaporates. Chamorros generally use coconut milk.
The recipe in A Taste of Guam is for the sweet version of gollai åppan aga' using ripe plantains or ripe cooking bananas. If you don't like the sweet version, use unripened cooking bananas. Add a little bit of salt instead of sugar, some bacon, and omit the cinnamon.
