If the name reminds you of a delicacy you have often had at the local bakery, we will tell you upfront that these Coconut Rolls are totally different, quite unlike anything you have ever tasted before!

Succulent pancakes stuffed with a sweet and aromatic coconut filling are sealed and deep-fried till perfectly crisp. As always, the setting of a crisp outer with a soft inner is a huge success in this unusual dessert too.

Also try other pancake desserts like Nutella and Strawberry Mini Pancakes and Mango Pancakes .

The aroma of this filling is divine and the taste lingers on for a few minutes after having a bite. Grated coconut, vanilla essence, sugar and til are a fabulous combo. My daughter would not stop eating this.
