5. Extract coconut milk by using freshly grated coconut and hot water. We want to obtain semi thick milk so adjust the water quantity. Mix salt. This is the sauce for the pancake. It's an unsweetened coconut milk sauce.
6. For making this pancake, a special kind of wide and hollow pan with two handles at sides is needed. Add, 1/2 tsp of oil into the pan and wipe it of lightly using a tissue. First scoop a ladle full of batter and start swirling around ( If the batter is too thick, you may not able to swirl well.So keep the batter loose but not watery) . Keep the flame on low. You will notice it has a shape of a round boat. This pancake once cooked will loosen sides indicating time to remove it from the heat.
7. Drizzle generous amount of salted coconut milk on it before serving. If you can't find this type of pan, then you can make conventional pancake but thinner perhaps.
