Green rolls

Me with my working colleagues

Kuih Ketayap

This is a traditional kuih that you can find easily at roadside stalls in Malaysia. It's a rolled up pandan flavoured pancake with gula melaka and coconut filling. Pandan gives the pancake a lovely green colour and a wonderful fragrant flavour.

Today, my friend was teaching her form one students how to make 'kuih ketayap' during her 'home science class'.  I was in the next class. 
I love kuih ketayap but never try to make this at home. So, I with few teachers took the chance to learn today
 since we had free time:)

*Want to learn to make this 'kueh'. Here it goes.....


Coconut Filling

2 Cup Grated Coconut
60 – 80 g Gula Kabung / Melaka ( Palm Sugar ) or you can use normal sugar
¼ Cup Coconut Milk

Pandan Pancake

1 Cup All Purpose Flour
1 Large Egg
½ Cup Pandan Juice ( 2-4 pandan leaves blended with ½ cup water and strained )
1 Cup Coconut Milk
2 Tbs Vegetable Oil
2 Pandan Leaves, tied together to use as a brush
A pinch of Salt


Coconut Filling

1. Melt the sugar with coconut milk.
2. Once the sugar has melted, coat the grated coconut with the mixture and make sure it's not too dry.


1. In a mixing bowl, whisk flour, egg, pandan juice, coconut milk and salt together. 
2. Heat a non stick pan and brush it with oil using the pandan leaves brush.
3. Pour about a half cup of batter and move the pan around to spread the batter evenly. Use the same technique as making crepes.
4. Once cooked, remove from the pan and fill it with the coconut filling.
5. Roll the pancake like 'Popia'.
6. Repeat the steps until you've used up all the batter.

Don't forget to try yah:)
