Indonesian Pandan Pancakes with Coconut Filling

Jump to recipe

Have you ever been to Indonesia or Malaysia? This is where those delicious Kue (which means snack) Pandan pancakes with Coconut Filling come from.

The Pandan Juice is responsible for the beautiful green colour and adds a nice flavour, described as slightly nutty and aromatic, a bit like vanilla. Pandan is a tropical plant that grows and is cultivated in South East Asia. The narrow and long green leaves are widely used for cooking and flavouring, you can see them in the background of the picture.

In Singapore it is very easy to find fresh Pandan leaves. But if you are not so lucky and still want to discover the flavour, you can buy Pandan Juice or Extract. Sometimes you can even find powder. Use whatever is available to you to add aroma to the thin pancakes. Ask your asian shop.
