Kuih Dadar

I have this sudden urge to eat Kuih Dadar. I was put-off in making this kuih because I do not have a coconut grater to make the freshly grated coconut. I finally decided to try & make it using dessicated coconut. Viola! The coconut filling taste as good as the freshly grated coconut. This recipe will make about 8-9 pieces of kuih dadar.

Kuih Dadar/Kuih Ketayap

Batter for the skin:

  • 200ml coconut milk
  • 100ml water
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • a few drop of pandan paste
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten


  • 100g plain flour
  • 1tbsp corn flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • 100g gula melaka, grated
  • 25g sugar
  • 1 pandan leaves
  • 125ml water
  • 150g dessicated coconut

Combine (A):

  • 1tbsp corn flour
  • 11/2 tbsp water

To make the skin:

Sift the combined flour and salt ingredients into a mixing bowl. Add in conut milk, water, pandan paste and egg. Mix well to form a batter. Add a little more water if batter is too thick.

Heat a non stick pan over medium heat. Pour in 1/4 cup batter to the pan. Cook till the pancake is lightly brown the flip over and cook the other side.

Remove pancake onto a plate and add a spoonful of filling and roll up neatly.

To make filling:

Bring water, gula melaka, sugar and pandan leave in a pot and boil till sugar dissolve. Add in the coconut and lower the heat. Keep stirring to prevent the coconut from getting burnt. Cook until almost dry. Add in (A) and cook for a minute more or so. Cool before use.
