    1. To make the filling: Cut the palm sugar into chunks and place in pot with water and knotted pandan leaves. Bring to a boil then lower heat and add the grated coconut, mixing well. Keep stirring so the coconut doesn't burn and cook until almost dry and the coconut is moist. Transfer to a bowl and let cool.
    2. For the batter: Roughly chop the pandan leaves and put in blender with water and liquify. Strain with cheesecloth to get the pandan juice. Put the flour and salt into a mixing bowl. Pour in the egg, and slowly whisk in the coconut milk and pandan juice. Make sure the batter is not lumpy and add in a little more water if it's too thick.
    3. Heat a little butter in a non-stick pan and ladle some batter to make a thin pancake. Cook and then flip the other side until it's done.
    4. Place the pancake onto a plate and add a spoonful of filling down the center. Fold the right side over the filling, then fold both top and bottom in and roll the pancake from right to left.

    If you add in a pinch of salt to the filling, it will taste much better.  -  03 Apr 2015
