LANKAN PANCAKES


Sri Lankan pancakes are like comfort food and very addictive.

You could snack on it anytime for breakfast/ tea…..

These pancakes are available in any bakery or boutique in Sri Lanka everyday.

This is a pancake wrap with coconut and jaggery.You could add nuts if you like.

I always add nuts to fillings like this.

There are many types of lankan dishes with coconut and jaggery,and today I will share

this simple and tasty recipe first.

1/4 tsp. salt

1 tblsp sugar/ honey (optional)

METHOD

Using a blender, mix all this to make a pouring consistency batter (you can add more

liquid if the batter is thick ).The batter should be free from lumps.

For the filling

3/4 – 1 cup treacle/ or grated jaggery(depending on individual taste)

1/2 tsp cardamon powder
