Balinese Coconut Pancakes – Dadar Gulung

After my Balinese Cooking class at the Nirwana Pan Pacific in Bali I simply had to share these delicious Coconut Pancakes with readers. The coconut pancake recipe also includes pandan juice which gives it a distinct green colour and very subtle Indonesian flavour.

The pancakes are made in the very thin crepe style, and then stuffed with a sweet caramel flavoured coconut mixture. The coconut filling is also cooked with a little piece of pandan leaf which continues the flavour profile through crepe.

The effect is a sweet, sticky caramel flavoured crepe with a uniquely Asian flavour.
