This is a crepe which is quite similar to one of our local kuih muih called 'kuih dadar' or 'kuih ketayap' whereby the batter is made with pandan juice, coconut milk and plain flour. Grated coconut cooked with gula melaka is used as the filling.
But I think this crepe is a healthier version because it does not use coconut milk. Either coconut filling or peanut filling can be used depending on your own preference. Even fresh, finely shredded salad vegetables can be used as filling. Since I have grounded peanuts ready, I added some sugar and roasted sesame seeds for the filling.
Ingredients for Batter
180 gm plain flour
400 ml water
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp oil
Ingredients for Filling - Mix together
150 gm roasted peanuts - grounded
75 gm castor sugar
1/2 tbsp oil [optional]
- Put all batter ingredients into a mixing bowl. Mix into a smooth batter and strain. Leave to rest for at least 10 minutes.
- Heat up a little oil in non stick pan on medium low heat, pour in a small ladle of batter and swirl into a thin, round shape pancake. Cook until pancake is slightly brown. Remove to cool and do the same till batter is finished.
- While making the pancake, put some peanut filling onto the cooled pancake and roll up like spring roll. Serve immediately or keep in container to serve later.
