Coconut Pancake!

Ingredients

For the pancake mixture

  • 110g/4oz plain flour, sifted

  • pinch of salt

  • 2 eggs

  • 200ml/7fl oz milk mixed with 75ml/3fl oz water

  • 50g/2oz butter

Filling

  • Sugar
  • Coconut
  • Cardomom powder.


Preparation method


1) Sift flour and salt into a medium sized mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre and into this, pour in the eggs, coconut milk and pandan juice. Using a whisk, gradually incorporate the flour into the liquid, making a smooth batter free from lumps. (If you should have lumps, just strain the batter using a sieve)

2) Thin the batter down with the additonal 65ml of water and stir in the oil. Mix well. Cover bowl and allow batter to stand for 20 - 30 minutes.

3) Mix the ingredients for filling and keep aside as well.

4) To make the pancakes, heat a small non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Using a heat-proof brush, lightly brush you pan with some oil. Ensure your pan is sufficient hot (a drop of water should sizzle instantly) before starting on the pancakes.

5) Stir batter, pour about 2 Tbsp of batter into the pan and immediately rotate the pan so that the batter covers the base in a thin layer. (You want to achieve a pancake size of about 5" circle) Allow batter to set and just begin to brown. Flip pancake over and allow the other side to cook, just for a few seconds.

6) Turn the pancake out onto a plate. Continue making the pancakes, stacking the finished ones on top of each other as you go along. As the batter tends to thicken as you cook the pancakes, you might need to thin it down with a tablespoon water.


7) Now take the coconut filling and add to the pancakes one by one and roll them.


Its really yummy and can be had as an evening snack or for breakfast for those who likes sweets.

About Me and My Kitchen

When I was a kid I remember when my mom had gone out I used to skip into the kitchen secretly and experiment what ever I could. One day I remember having prepared meat Puff and can you imagine a dog that does not eat something made with meat yes our Jimmy did so. I would have stopped experimenting at that time if it was not for my younger sister who ate the puffs and said "good, you could make it a bit more better. She was always like that though I knew I was a bad cook, she always used to taste what ever I prepared and encouraged me in preparing more and more.

Thus after many years, I cannot say I am an expert cook but my hubby especially encourages me to prepare more and more. But he always says rather than Naadan( local or common) food I am good in preparing some chinese or some continental food. So my experiments were more in that rather than the naadan food, may be because I am fond of that. Now my inspiration and support for cooking is my son who is my greatest fan and encourages me to try out variety..

So lets start of with some naadan food which I prepare and then later go into my experiments I think that would be much better.........
