Tapioca Pancake aka Lempeng Ubi @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A traditional pancake made with fresh grated tapioca and coconut.

It has been over  10 years since  I have eaten this Tapioca Pancake served by my late mum.

Those days, we have to prepare the tapioca from scratch.  Peeling and grating was the first step for making this pancake.  Today grated tapioca was readily available in the market.

Using a non stick pan eliminated  the need to use excessive oil when frying  them.

Tapioca Pancake can be eaten with sugar or dip in spicy gravy.   Sugar could be added while mixing the batter for a sweet version. So I leave it to you to decide how you want to enjoy them.

Serves   3-4

2 cups grated tapioca
1/2 cup grated coconut
3/4 cup water
salt to taste


Combine tapioca, coconut and water in a mixing bowl.

Sprinkle salt and stir to incorporate the mixture.

Heat a 7 in non stick pan, spread a teaspoon of oil.  Pour one ladle of batter, spread with a back of ladle.

When it turns pale in color, turn over and cook the other side until  it  turns slightly brown.  Complete the rest of the batter.

Serve hot with sugar or spicy gravy.

Though I live in the land of tapioca (Kerala), I was not aware of this particular variety of food.
