Peningnya memikir nak masak apa.
Rasanya macam masalah sejagat.
I always thought of preparing a week's menu. But it never happen yet. Perhaps one day it will.
This is my fast solution for tonight's dinner.
Lempeng kelapa @roti nyog @lempeng nyoq @lempeng nyiur.
Those are the synonyms. Variety of names referring to one product.
'Nyog' is coconut pronounced in the the northern states of Malaysia.
Nyiur or nyior is coconut pronounced in the eastern states of Malaysia.
In Bahasa Melayu, we called it 'kelapa'.
Lempeng is similar to flat bread but it is a batter rather than a dough.
Now with the recipe:
I get hold of a small packet of grated coconut about 2 cups. (Preferably only the white is used). Put in a bowl.
Next I added 1 cup of multipurpose flour.
I added 1 beaten egg.
A pinch of salt to taste.
And finally about 1 cup of plain water.
Mix everything well.
The batter should be runny. Add more water if it does not.
Then, spoon the batter onto a hot griddle. Flatten it just like making a pancake.
Let it cook on one side. Then flip to cook on the other side.
Once ready, serve it.
You can enjoy it with curry, sambal ikan bilis or even the brown rice.
