Lempeng kelapa is a traditional local pancake commonly found in Malay kampung kitchen. Made out of two basic ingredients – flour and shredded young coconut, it is the simplest and famous breakfast meal you can have. Best to have it dipped with leftovers curry gravy or sambal ikan bilis – my personal choice is fish curry.
This traditional pancake is known as ‘peknga’ in Kedah, where it commonly found.
The word ‘peknga’ came from tempek atas belanga – which literally means smeared on the pot, a traditional method used to make this breafast snack 🙂
