Swayed-Buble Pancake -Kuih Lenggang (Kuih Dadar) Recipe

To name it in English in creative way is definitely easier, I named it as Swayed-Buble Pancake, due to the swaying movement when you spread the batter on the pan. Sway song is usually associated with Michael Buble, so here you are: Swayed-Buble Pancake.

Today, while still in Perth City, I have decided to give a hand to my sister-in-law on making Kuih Lenggang Recipe at Winthrop Club. Back at home (Sabah, Malaysia), we usually eat this as our snack, during late afternoon. Nowadays, you can serve this as part of your breakfast meal, or etc. So, let's peep what are the ingredients and methods to prepare: -

(warning, using electrical pan doesn't give similar outcome with the traditional method)

300 g plain flour
500ml water
150 g palm sugar
250 g grated coconut
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon Aroma Pasta Pandan syrup (quite difficult to get real pandan juice in Aussie


  1. Boil the palm sugar with water (100ml) until it melts.
  2. Pour in the grated coconut with a pinch of salt.
  3. Cook and stir the mixture until it is fairly dry.
  4. Set aside to cool.

  1. Mix the flour, water, eggs, pandan syrup and a pinch of salt until you get a smooth batter.
  2. Spread the batter into a think pancake.
  3. Turn it over and remove when both sides are cooked.
  4. Remove and set aside to cool.
  5. Put some coconut on the pancake.
  6. Roll up like a spring roll.
  7. Ready to be served. Bon Appetit. 

Let's give a try
She was giving a try on how to do the Kuih Lenggang. Do remember that it must be thinner in order to get the right texture, if you spread the batter a bit thicker, it will be quite difficult to roll it. 

Hmmm...was it sweet or ...? :p

From today's activity, I realised that cooking is not my genre, I don't speak the language of the Chef, but trying out such wild adventure will be the most unforgettable memory. Sweet memory as I envisaged it. :)
