  • Maida – 1 Cup
  • Coconut – ½
  • Sugar to taste
  • Water

Method of preparation:

  • Put the maida in a bowl and mix it with water until it gets to the consistency of dosa batter. Set aside.
  • Grate the coconut into a bowl, add sugar to taste and mix well.
  • Heat a flat pan or griddle, lightly grease it, then pour enough of the batter to make a thin pancake by swirling the pan.
  • Cook on low heat until it is done. Cook on one side only.
  • Once it is cooked, flip onto a plate and let it cool. Repeat until all the batter is used up.
  • When they pancakes are all done and cooled, place a spoonful of the coconut mixture in the centre of each one and fold up the sides to make a roll. 20150308_214655

  • And your yummy pancakes are ready to eat!
