Fold in the sides and roll up the pancake like a burrito, sealing the edges. Repeat this process with the remaining pancakes and filling.
Take one cooked pandan pancake and place a spoonful of the coconut and palm sugar filling along one edge.
In a separate pan, combine the grated coconut, palm sugar, and a pinch of salt. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar melts and the mixture becomes sticky and fragrant, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly.
Pour a ladleful of the pancake batter into the skillet and swirl it around to create a thin, round pancake. Cook until the edges start to lift and the pancake is lightly browned on one side, about 2 minutes. There's no need to flip it. Remove it from the skillet and set it aside.
Heat a non-stick skillet or frying pan over medium-low heat. Lightly grease it with oil or butter.
In a mixing bowl, combine the rice flour, all-purpose flour, pandan juice, coconut milk, salt, and water. Stir until you have a smooth, green-colored batter. You can add green food coloring if needed for a more vibrant green hue.
Tips for this recipe
Pandan leaves can be challenging to find in some places. If you can’t obtain fresh pandan leaves for the juice, you can use pandan extract or essence, which is available in many Asian grocery stores.
