Malaysian Savoury Pancake Bites (Kuih Cara Berlauk)
Come and try these Malaysian savoury pancake bites! This recipe is made easier for expats and others outside Malaysia (like you and me). Soft pancake with delicious minced beef curry filling. Yum!
Prep Time :
Cook Time :
all purpose flour
some fried shallot
Heat some oil in a pan on medium heat and add in onion, ginger, garlic and some salt. Cook until the onion is translucent. Then add in curry powder, sugar and cook for 30 seconds.
Now add in minced beef, salt to taste and mix everything well. Continue until meat is fully cooked. Add in ½ amount of red pepper and parsley in, give it a final mix and set aside.
Add egg, coconut milk, turmeric powder, salt into a bowl and whisk until well combined. Now add in flour and whisk everything until there are no lumps. Don't over mix though.
Spray a mini muffin pan of 24 holes with generous amount of oil. Then divide the pancake batter evenly into 18 holes.
Spoon in some filling into each hole, followed by some fried shallot.
Bake in a preheated oven at 375ºF (190ºC) for 15 minutes or until fully cooked. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes.
Use a small spoon and run it around and bottom of the pancake to help release it. Place on a serving plate. Sprinkle some red pepper, parsley on top and serve.
Don't over fill the holes with the filling. You will have some balance of the filling. Put it on your sunny side up egg or flavour your scramble eggs with it. Yum!
