in the evening.

Serves 6.

1 1/2 cups grated coconut
1/2 cup trickle (or 1/2 cup Brown sugar dissolved in 1/8 cup of water)
1 tsp ground cardamon seeds
dash of ground black pepper

Heat the trickle in a heavy bottom pan. When it is boiling add
the grated coconuts and the black pepper. Stir and cook under
low heat for about 10-15 minutes. Add salt to taste and cool.

For the pancakes:


2 eggs
1 1/2 cups wheat flour

1/4 cup oil for frying


Place all ingredients except the oil in a large bowl and beat
with a wire wisk until smooth. This batter can also be prepared
in a blender or food processor.

add about 1/4 tsp oil and spread over the pan evenly. Pour two
