SERABI ( pancakes with coconut sauce )

To celebrate the Thai New Year ( ahem..! always have excuses to entartain
:P ). Last Tues, I had some friends for coffee morning at home. To see this serabi, my Indonesian friends looked so thrilled since they missed it and I was to see my other (not Indonesian) friends enjoyed this food and asked for the recipe. So here it is :

2 1/2 cups flour, sifted

2 eggs, slightly beaten

2 t yeast

1/4 t salt

300 ml warm coconut milk

2 drops pandan paste for traditional taste and flavour or banana/coconut or substitute with 1/2 t vanilla essence

coconut sauce

1 l coconut milk

200 gr shaved palm sugar

2 T brown sugar

1/4 t salt

1 pandanus leaf, raked and tied into a knot

Put the flour into a bowl and add eggs, yeast and salt. Gradually stir in coconut milk and paste to make a thick batter. Cover with a cloth and leave in a warm place until the mixture turns spongy about 1 hour.

  1. To prepare the coconut sauce, put the thin coconut milk, both lots of sugar, salt and pandanus leaf in a opan. Bring to the boil over low heat, strring until the sugar dissolves. Simmer for 2 min the set aside.
  2. Grease the bottom of a small wok with oil and heat. Spread a ladleful of batter in the wok. Cook until the cake is set on top, 2-3 min. Turn over and cook the other side. When all the batter is used, remove the pandanus leaf from coconut sauce and pour some over each pancake. Serve immediately.
