If the name reminds you of a delicacy you have often had at the local bakery, we will tell you upfront that these Coconut Rolls are totally different, quite unlike anything you have ever tasted before! Succulent pancakes stuffed with a sweet and aromatic coconut filling are sealed and deep-fried till perfectly crisp. As always, the setting of a crisp outer with a soft inner is a huge success in this unusual dessert too.

Ingredients


For The Pancakes
1 cup cornflour
1 cup plain flour (maida)
1 1/2 cups milk
a pinch of salt
melted butter for brushing and cooking

To Be Mixed Into A Filling
1 cup grated fresh coconut
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds (til)

Other Ingredients
oil for deep-frying

For Serving
vanilla ice-cream

Method
For the pancakes

  1. Combine all the ingredients along with 1 cup of water in a deep bowl and mix well.
  2. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle), grease it with butter, pour ¼ cup of the batter on it and spread in a circular motion to make a thick pancake of 100 mm. (4") diameter.
  3. Cook the pancake on a medium flame, using a little butter, till it turns golden brown in colour from both the sides.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to make about 11 more pancakes. Keep aside.

How to proceed

  1. Place a pancake on a clean, dry surface, put 1 tbsp of the filling on one end of the circle and roll it up tightly
  2. Seal the edges by applying a little of the pancake mixture.
  3. Heat the oil in a deep non-stick kadhai and deep- fry, a few rolls at a time on a high flame, till they turn golden brown in colour from all the sides.
  4. Drain on an absorbent paper. Cut the rolls diagonally into 2 and serve immediately with vanilla ice-cream.

The aroma of this filling is divine and the taste lingers on for a few minutes after having a bite. Grated coconut, vanilla essence, sugar and til are a fabulous combo. My daughter would not stop eating this.

They are quick and easy.. This recipe is specially for all the coconut lovers.. Deep-fried coconut pancakes have a nice smack of coconut and roasted sesame seeds.
