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!
