Ingredients : Makes about 12 pancakes

2

2 3/4 cups

2 cups

1/2 teaspoon

2 tablespoons

Eggs

Coconut milk or fresh milk

Plain flour, sifted

Salt

Oil for frying

Method :
  • Beat eggs thoroughly, add milk and mix.

  • Put flour and salt into a large bowl and add the liquid steadily, pouring it into the middle of the flour while mixing with a wooden spoon.

  • Do not add liquid too slowly at first or it will be difficult to get rid of the lumps.

  • When all the liquid has been added, beat until batter is smooth.

  • Heat a heavy omelet pan or pancake pan and grease lightly with apiece of kitchen paper dipped in oil.

  • Pour batter into pan, moving the ladle back and forth so that the pancake will have a perforated appearance.

  • Cook until set and pale golden underneath, then turn and cook other side.

  • Continue until all the batter is used up.

  • If batter thickens on standing, add a little water and stir well.
