2. Add in the pandan leafs or the cardamon powder,a pinch of salt and coconut and continue cooking over low heat for 10 to 15 mints until the coconut filling is thick and glossy. Most of the liquid should have evaporated. Cool and use as fillings.

For the batter:

150 gm flour

2 small eggs,beaten

150ml coconut milk or milk

100 ml pandan juice. if you don't have pandan juice add water.But remember that it is the pandan juice that really make this pancake very delicious.

65 ml water

3. To fry pancakes,heat a small frying pan, preferably a non-stick pan. over a medium heat. Brush your pan with a little oil. Ensure that the pan is sufficiently hot.

4. Stir the batter. pour a spoon ful of it into the pan and immediately rotate the pan so that the batter covers the base in a thin layer. Allow batter to set and just begin to brown. Flip pancake over and allow the orther side to cook,just for a few seconds.

5. When cool place a spoonful of the filling in the centre of the pancake fold both sides towards the middle and roll the pancakes away from you. neatly enclosing the filling and creating a little parcel.
