Kuih Dadar Labu/Pumpkin Crepes Recipe @

Most South East Asian  kuih or bite sized dessert uses natural products such as coconut, banana or tapioca.  One of my favorite kuih is Kuih Dadar or kuih ketayap, a rolled crepe stuffed with sweeten grated coconut.   It was made by 2 parts, outer cover and the filling normally made  with coconut.

Kuih Dadar  uses natural food coloring by blending  pandan leaves with liquid then strain.  Pandan juice is added back to the batter.  These leaves not only gives a beautiful color but also a nice fragrance.   You can simply omit pandan leaves if it is not available at your area, just add green food coloring or a tablespoon of pandan paste.

Made a substitution for the filling using mashed pumpkin instead of grated coconut.  Also prepared it using milk and not coconut milk.   This filling will keep well in a refrigerator if you cook it longer. Adjust the sweetness to your liking  by adding more sugar.

Steam or microwave pumpkin until soft.   Mash while still hot.

Place all ingredients in a pot.   Stir with a whisk until well mixed.

Discard pandan leaves and leave to cool.


Cut pandan leaves into small pieces and place in a blender together with water.  Blend then strain.

Place all ingredients including pandan juice into a blender.  Blend until smooth.

Heat a non stick flat pan, place 1/4 tsp of oil and rub with kitchen towel. Rub this oiled towel again before pouring the batter.

Pour a ladle of batter, spread or swirl the pan  until it becomes very thin.

Remove from pan when it turns green all over, no need to flip.

Complete the rest of the batter.

Spread the crepe on a plate.   Place  1 heaped tablespoon of filling on one end, fold to cover the filling.  Now fold both sides and continue rolling up.
