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 cup flour
1 tsp butter
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tblsp sugar/ honey (optional)
a pinch of turmeric ( for color)
2 cups milk/ 2 cups water
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
2 cups grated coconut
3/4 – 1 cup treacle/ or grated jaggery(depending on individual taste)
1/2 tsp cardamon powder
a pinch of salt
Heat the jaggery with a little water untill it melts.Strain and heat with coconut and nuts
again for 2 minutes.
Add cardamon powder and remove from fire.
Make thin pancakes,add filling and make neat rolls
Note: Sugar can be used to replace jaggery.When using sugar it’s best to caramelise and add coconut.
