Kuih Ketayap/Pandan Crepe with Sweet Coconut filling


kuih-ketayap

Miss E said I had OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)...I guess all teens would say that to their mom...Right? hope I am not alone here.  I have to have everything in place...or events must take place as planned!!
Take this blog for example... I planned to post 3 posts per week: Tuesday is for flavours around the Globe, Thursday is for Malaysian/Asian and Saturday is specially dedicated for Dessert or sweet things...
I am going to prove(Help...the spelling does not look right here..) her wrong... and will start to post any article/post on any day... not restricting myself to the 3 days mentioned earlier...
I shall start with....

Kuih Ketayap or Crepe (oohh... sounds so Frenchwinking) is a typical Malaysian Breakfast or afternoon delight...

Why its called Ketayap?? I would not have a clue... Ketayap is a Malay word means 'White Skull Cap'... but the kuih has no resemblance to the attire... so I shall not delve into the matter further...before I make myself sound silly and stupid

This is one of the kuih that I love to eat and it is not difficult to make either. The batter should not be too thick (would you enjoy a thick crepe?? dont think so...) or too thin (difficult to roll... later).  
Words of advice: do a trial run to check the right consistency... eventhough I do follow the measurement below... I tend to add about 1 or 2 tablespoon of water to it, as I yearn for a thin and soft crepe... or in simple word : Fussy...
