Method: In a bowl, add the grated coconut and sugar and mix well. Keep this aside.

To make the crepes, mix the flour, egg, coconut milk, pandan juice/paste/pandan pancake mix, water, & salt in a large bowl.  Whisk into a smooth batter that has a pouring consistency. Lightly grease a non-stick pan and heat over low-medium flame. Stir the batter and pour one ladle of the batter onto the pan and turn the pan to obtain a thin round layer. Cook until the crepe until it begins to brown, then flip it over and cook for a few seconds, and remove from the heat. Continue to make the crepes until all the batter is used up. Top up each crepe with 2 tbsp of the coconut-sugar mixture filling. Roll up the crepe tightly into a cylinder. Assemble the remaining crepes in the same manner. Serve and enjoy as an evening snack!
