Prep time


Cooking time




  • 250 gms. Maida

  • 2 Eggs (lightly beaten)

  • Salt to taste

  • Water as required for the batter

  • Oil/Ghee/Butter for coating the pan for each pancake


  • Procedure for the Pancake Batter:
  • In a sufficiently large bowl, sift the maida along with salt.
  • Add the beaten eggs & water to prepare a sufficiently thin batter. The batter should be of dropping consistency like dosa batter which can spread easily.
  • You may even use a smaller or even a larger pan; depending on the size of the pancake you would like to prepare.
  • Heat a med. Size frying pan till hot & add/brush just enough oil to coat the pan. Do not add too much oil.
  • Pour a ladle of the batter & immediately roll the pan along with the batter.
  • Make sure it coats the pan evenly & sufficiently thick.
  • If the coat is too thin then the pancake will break. The batter should hold well.
  • Cook only on one side for about a minute or try & lift with a spatula. If it tends to lift easily then it is done.
  • Overturn the pan to flip the pancake on to the plate.
  • Prepare all the pancakes with the batter in this way.
  • For the Filling:
  • Mix together the below mentioned ingredients & keep aside to fill the pancakes.
  • Big fresh coconut (scraped)
  • Goan pyramid palm jaggery or to taste (grated or broken into fine pieces)
  • Pods green cardamom (powdered)
  • Assembling the Alle Belle with the Filling:
  • Place a pancake on a plate.
  • Place sufficient coconut – jaggery filling in the centre & fold both the sides inward so that it overlaps; making sure that the filling is well covered or roll like a swiss roll.
  • Fill all pancakes in this way & place gently on a serving platter.
  • Serve at tea time & enjoy!
