  • 1 In a small pan, add ¼ cup water, sugar/jaggery, coconut and salt. Cook on low flame till mixture turns dry and sticky. Add the cardamom powder. Keep the filling aside.
  • 2 For the Batter:- Mix in the flour, egg, salt, baking powder and sufficient water to make a slighter thinner batter than pancake batter. Divide batter into two parts. (If using colors, pink and green) Otherwise use white batter to make the pancakes.
