Kuih Dadar (Coconut Crepes)

Well, I decided not to let the excess grated coconut from the Onde-Onde go to waste, so, I made another traditional Malaysian sweet kuih. Do try the recipe and have a good weekend!

Kuih Dadar (Coconut Crepes)


Coconut Filling
150 g Grated Coconut
100g Palm Sugar (Gula Melaka)
100 ml Water
1 Pandan(Screwpine) Leaf, knotted

Coconut Crepes
200 g All Purpose Flour, sifted
4 Pandan Leaves
300 ml Water
100 ml Coconut Milk
1 Large Egg
1 tsp Vegetable Oil
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
Oil for greasing the crepe pan


To make the filling, boil the water with palm sugar and pandan leaf. Lower the heat and simmer until all the sugar has melted.

Then mix in the grated coconut, stir until well combine for about 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.

For the coconut crepes: Blend the Pandan leaves with water and strain the Pandan juice. Combine the flour, Pandan juice, salt and coconut milk and stir well. Then add the egg, oil and whisk until the batter is smooth.

Heat up a lightly oil Crepe pan or any non-stick pan over moderate heat. Pour about 2 to 3 tbsp of batter, swirl the pan to distribute the batter evenly. Allow the batter to set and turn over to cook the other side.

Place a portion of coconut filling in the centre of each crepe and fold them like in spring roll. Serve immediately.

    @helen: Thanks. I'm not sure whether you can get shredded coconut in Vancouver though.. there are some at T&T's frozen section but, I find them a bit too coarse. FYI, I grated my own coconut.

    @Elissa: Do try to make them, if you can't get a hold of any grated coconut then substitute with dessicated ones.

    @Big Boys Oven: Thanks and you're lucky in KL you can practically get them at most coffee shops ;)
