Pek Nga

Assalamualaikum all.
Jangan lupa jawab salam ye ....

Sounds weird isn't it, the name? That is what we called it in kampung. PEK NGA. Short for 'temPEK di belaNGA'. 
It is also called 'Lempeng Nyiur' in the east cost and perhaps 'Lempeng Kelapa' elsewhere. 
I like eating it, and it is very easy to make too.

What you need are:
The basic:
1 young coconut - grated
Multi purpose flour
Pinch of salt

1 egg
2 tablespoon of olive oil or butter

The making is so simple. Just mix all the ingredient together in a bowl. It should not be too runny. Just enough liquid so that you will be able to 'tempek' in your pan. The mixture should be something like the pancake except this is with the grated coconut in it. On a heated pan, you can start making the PEK NGA.

Serve it hot and enjoy it in variety of ways. Some have it with fish curry, my husband likes it it brown sugar, but today we are having it with the Sambal Bilis.

Bon Appetite.
