The crepe:

The filling:

  • 200 ml water
  • 3 pandan leaves knotted
  • 400 gr grated unsweetened coconut
  • 200 gr palm sugar or use coconut sugar


Preparing the batter:

  • Place the flour and salt in a large mixing bowl. Stir to mix. Made a well in the center and crack in the eggs. Use a rubber spatula to break the eggs and start to incorporate the flour from the side while gradually add in the pandan juice and then coconut milk. Mix until the batter is smooth. Strain the batter if necessary to get rid of lumps. Cover and let the batter rest for 1 hour. You can keep the batter in the fridge up to 48 hours

Making the crepes:

  • Rub the non-stick skillet with oil. Spoon in about less than 1/4 cup of the batter and swirl the pan to cover the pan quickly to make a thin pancake about 8 inches in diameter. Cook for about 30 seconds and then flip over and cook for another 10 seconds. Remove and set aside. make pancakes with the remaining batter in the same manner

Preparing the filling (can be done the day before):

  • Place all the ingredients in a medium sauce pan and cook until the water is absorbed and the coconut is dark brown in color and it's dry. Set aside to cool down.


  • Place about 1-2 Tbsp of the filling near the edge of the lower half of the pancake you prepare earlier. Fold the bottom over once, then fold the right side and left side to the middle and over once more to make a cylinder shape. I actually fold the right and left side first in the photos (excuse me!). Didn't cause major mishap if you are wondering! Repeat with the rest of the crepes and filling. Serve at room temperature as a snack with a tea or coffee
