Directions:

» Take your fresh green banana leaves and strip the leaves from the stalk with a sharp knife, then you need to singe the leaves over a naked flame just long enough to make them pliable.

» Now tear your leaves into squares big enough to wrap your conkie mixture into.

» Next you will need to grate your pumpkin, coconut and sweet potato into a large mixing bowl.

» Next add your raisins, sugar, salt, spice, almond essence, nutmeg, corn flour and plain flour and mix it all together.

» Beat your egg and add that to the mixing bowl.

» Now you can add your milk and margarine or lard, the mixture should now be stiff to mix.
