KUE DADAR/ STUFFED COCONUT PANCAKES

After making the Onde Onde, I still had quite a bit of grated coconut left and so I went ahead and made this Kue dadar. Kue dadar or Stuffed coconut pancake is one of the Indonesian popular snacks. You will see this being sold at push carts all over the places in Indonesia. These tasty pancakes are green. I’m not really sure why it’s green, but as far as I concern, it tastes really good.
The skin is pretty much the same as making a pancake or can I say Crepe too ? the filling is made of grated coconut, Gula Jawa and a little flour. It is then wrapped the same way you would wrap a spring roll.

KUE DADAR/ STUFFED COCONUT PANCAKES (8 pancakes)
 
What you will need:
  • THE PANCAKES:
  • ⅔ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • 1 cup water
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • 2 drops of green food coloring
  • Oil for skillet
  • THE STUFFING:
  • 1½ cups grated unsweetened coconut
  • ⅓ cup gula jawa/ dark palm sugar
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • ¼ tsp vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp flour
Instructions:
  1. Mix all the ingredients for pancake together, except the oil, into a smooth batter. Sieve the batter to remove any lumps
  2. Rub the non-stick skillet with oil. Spoon in about 2 Tbsp of the batter and spread it over the skillet to make a thin pancake about 5-6 inches in diameter. Fry for about 1 minute over very low heat on both side. Remove and set aside. make pancakes with the remaining batter in the same manner
  3. In a bowl, mix the coconut, sugar, water and vanilla together. In a skillet without oil, stir-fry it over low heat for 3 minutes. Stir in the flour and stir-fry for another 2 minutes. Remove and set aside
  4. Place 2 Tbsp of the stuffing near the edge of the lower half of the pancake you prepare earlier. Fold over once, then fold the right side and left side to the middle and over once more to make a cylinder shape. Repeat with the rest of the pancakes and stuffing
  5. Serve at room temperature as a snack with a tea or coffee

COMMON MISTAKES WHILE MAKING KUE DADAR:

1. Did not sieve the pancake mixture – Your pancake will be lumpy and heavy

2. Spoon too much batter at one time – This results in thick skin and when you fold the skin, it will break
