Kluai buat chi or banana in coconut milk (Thai: กล้วยบวชชี, pronounced [klûa̯j bùa̯t t͡ɕʰīː]) is a Thai dessert. Bananas are simply cooked in a mixture of coconut milk and coconut cream to create a flavorful dessert. Usually, Kluai buat chi is composed of two batters, one salty and one sweet, both of which are cooked in a pot.
The dessert is widely served throughout Thailand and is popular in neighboring countries such as Burma, Laos, Cambodia, and Malaysia. It may be served hot or cold.
The phrase buat chi in Thai may refer to the white clothing worn by a woman entering a sisterhood, a similar color palette to kluai buat chi.
