Indonesian Coconut Pancakes

Updated: Sep 10, 2019

When I am not travelling the world, I love to go out for dinner and try all kinds of exotics foods, new flavors and special dishes. What is even more exciting is to keep those travel memories alive at home as well. Don't you just love taking a trip down memory lane?

With the following travel inspired recipe I think back on those beautiful days spent in Indonesia, the Emerald of the Equator.

Kue Dadar Gulung

These lactose-free pancakes are flavored with pandan and stuffed with palm-sugar and grated coconut. A delicious afternoon treat!

Grocery list (8-10 pancakes)

  • 250 ml coconut milk

  • 250 gr self-raising flower

  • A few drops of pandan extract (Asian Toko or Supermarket)

  • 1 egg

  • 100 gr Palm sugar

  • 200 gr grated coconut (dry)

  • 100 ml water

  • Salt

  • Vegetable Oil

Put the coconut milk, flower, egg, a pinch of salt and the pandan extract in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Put the batter aside.

Put the grated coconut, a pinch of salt and the water in a cooking pan on low heat and stir gently until the water is absorbed and you get a smooth paste. Take of heat.


Take a medium sized frying pan and start making your pancakes. Preheat the pan over medium-high heat. Scoop ¼ cup of batter onto griddle. Cook your pancakes for 1 minute each side until done. Your pancake should look green and golden!


Fill each pancake with about 2 to 3 tablespoons of coconut paste.


Fold the bottom over once, then fold the right side and left side to the middle. This will give them a cylinder shape with a secure bottom. Or roll them any way you like ;-)


Selamat Makan! Bon appétit! Enjoy!
