Daniel Puskas cut a dash through some of Sydney's finest restaurants before opening Sixpenny in the neighbourhood of Stanmore. One of Sixpenny's many pleasures is the gentle sense of dislocation between the sleepy, genteel suburban setting and the radical things playing out on the plate.

Be careful not to cook over too high a heat or for too long or the rice can become tough. Use overripe bananas for this recipe - their pronounced sugar produces a luscious paste." Start this recipe a day ahead to soak the rice.
