Muttakuzhalappam (Coconut Pancake)


Muttakuzhalappam or Coconut Pancake is a Kerala Christian delicay. It is an ancient traditional recipe. We all love to eat it at breakfast time. Kids will surely love to eat it as a snack!

What you need:

All purpose flour (maida) -2 cups
Eggs -2
Salt -to taste
Water

For the filling:

Grated coconut -2 cups
Cardamom powder -1 tsp
Sugar -5 tbsp



Method:

Break the eggs into a bowl and beat them well. Add some water and mix well. Add the flour and salt and mix with an egg beater to form a smooth batter. The batter should be thinner than the dosa consistency. Add more water if needed. In another bowl, mix together grated coconut, sugar and cardamom powder. Keep aside. Heat a non stick frying pan and smear some oil on it. Pour a large spoonful of batter and tilt the pan to make a thin round pancake. Keep on mediun flame. Fry lightly on both sides. Transfer the pancake on to a plate. While you make the next one, place a tablespoon of the coconut filling on one end of the pancake and roll it. Transfer it to a serving dish. Repeat the process with the rest of the batter. You can make 12 pancakes out of it.

Muttakkuzhalappam used to be my favourite evening snack after school and my mother's too, coz of the ease of cooking...and I still love this, but i guess, even among keralites, this is not all that popular, as once I made it for some friends here and they were having it the first time, and that surprised me as this was a regular at our home, as evening snack.
