Regular pancakes turn into an extraordinary treat when deep-fried with a stuffing of sweet, vanilla-flavoured coconut.

Make sure you cook the pancakes with butter initially, because that contributes to the rich flavour of the rolls. Also take care when applying the maida paste and rolling up the pancakes so that the coconut mixture does not spill out when frying.

The rolls have an amazing melt-in-the-mouth texture, thanks to the crisp pancake cover and the succulent coconut mixture. Serve the Fried Coconut Rolls topped with Ice-creams , for an experience that will put ordinary apple pies to shame!

Fried coconut rolls.. a super sweet dish after a meal. Soft from inside.. and cruchy from outside.. the coconut inside is sweet and juicy.. And to serve this with an ice-cream is just lip smacking.. I really make this often.. and every body loves this..

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.
