Kueh Dadar / Pandan Crepe with coconut filling

03.08.2012 - Batam.  Suddenly Im missing Kueh dadar. Perhaps too much thinking of home in Sabah.   Its not always easy to get kueh like anytime i want.  I only buy them when im out once a week from the Resort and cross my fingers if i can find one.

Kueh Dadar is a classic! Everyone loves it.  For me, everything to do with grated coconut, I will sure loves it! Im a coconut lover. How do i not to love this kueh as it is so mouth watering with Pandan aroma and coconut milk mixed together. They are just match mate in heaven!

Although is my first time making this kueh, i find it super easy and i have so much fun making it.  By the way, my rolling technique still need a lot of improvement. :P
