Kuih Ketayap (coconut filled crepe)

I made this kuih ketayap after salivating over it while surfing through the bloggers' posts recently and found quite a few recipes for this kuih.  One particular recipe caught my eye because of it's simple steps.  I love the green colored crepes that were used to wrap the coconut filling.  With the use of coconut milk in the batter made cooking these crepe easy even on a stainless steel pan!

Shredded coconut cooked with palm sugar ready for use.
Pandan flavored crepe, ready to be filled and rolled. It's quite delicate, so handle with care please.
Ahh...finally all rolled up and ready to be served!

See the delicious coconut in the crepe? Didn't take long to disappear:D

The recipe that I used is adapted from Rasa Malaysia
Kuih Ketayap:

Ingredient for Crepe
120g flour
1 egg
300ml coconut milk (I used 200ml and 100ml water)
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoon pandan juice (blend 4-5 chopped pandan leaves with water and squeeze out the juice)

90g Gula Melaka (I used 1-2 tablespoons more because I like it sweet)
1 tablespoon sugar
1 pandan leaf knotted
50ml water
1/2 grated coconut - use only the white part
1 tsp corn starch

1)  Place flour in a mixing bowl.  Make a well in the centre and crack in the egg.  Slowly stir in salt and coconut milk and 3 tablespoons of pandan juice.  You can strain the batter for a lump free mixture. Set aside.

2) Break up palm sugar and place in a pot, add sugar, water and pandan leave.  Cook over medium heat until sugar dissolves then add the shredded coconut to the pot. Stir to combine all ingredients.  Add corn starch to thicken, continue to cook till almost dry. Dish out to cool in a bowl.

3) Heat up a shallow, lightly greased frying pan over low heat.  Add 2 tablespoons of batter in the centre and swirl the pan to coat it to form a thin crepe. I used a spatula to help me in this step. Swirling doesn't work for me here. Cook a few minutes on each side and transfer to a chopping board to cool.

4) When all the crepes are cooked, place filling on a piece of crepe and roll it up as you would a spring roll.
