Ingredients and cooking method

Indonesian popular kue; nagasari, kue ku and dadar gulung.

The batter is made from the mixture of flour, salt, eggs and coconut milk. Mix the batter with suji or daun pandan paste as green food coloring. To make the filling, combine the grated coconut flesh, palm sugar, salt, cinnamon and water in a pot on the stove. A tied pandan leave is usually added to the mixture for aroma. The green-colored batter is then cooked on flat frying pan with small amount of margarine, much in the same fashion as baking a thin pancake or omelette. Then the sweet coconut filling is placed upon the flat green pancake, and then folded on each sides just like tortilla, to create an elongated rectangular shape.[1]
