I am feeling homesick... It's just sad sometimes being away from the people who've known you since you're a baby. I am missing my homeland, missing the food and people around me. It's so quite here in the countryside.
Anyway, I am sending my entry for Recipe Remix Part II, hosted by duo Robin and Danielle. It's all about breakfast with a twist. And I am sending these green pancakes stuffed with sweetened coconut threads, my childhood delicacy to start the day with a cup of green tea.

With an adjustment to ingredients available in my kitchen. Cook the filling firsthand, so you can fold it in the crepes every time the crepe is cooked.
250g plain flour
4 eggs, whisked
350ml coconut milk
1/4 tsp salt
50ml air daun suji (I am using 2 tsps pandan paste mixed with 50ml water)
margarine to brush
Mix flour, eggs, salt, and pandan water. Pour in the coconut milk a little at a time while whisking the ingredients to combine. Heat the crepe pan, brush with margarine. Spoon the batter on to the pan, tilting to spread the batter around the pan. Brown the bottom side and flip over to brown the upper side. Fill each cooked crepe with the filling.
250g desiccated coconut
150g palm sugar
2 pandan leaves
1/4 tsp salt
Cook all ingredients until the mixture is thickened and the water is absorbed. Cool before filling it onto the crepes.
